Ruth Miller’s Atmosphere of Thought

Painter Kim Sloane writes about the exhibition Ruth Miller: Recent Work at Lohin Geduld Gallery, New York, on view through November 12, 2011.

Sloane writes that “The paintings display a mastery of color… and the ability to combine and structure pictures through both drawing and color… The elevation in Miller’s painting is achieved through this structuring. She is a constructor, a term used by Cezanne to describe Michelangelo. [Miller] builds with pieces of paint that are responses to her subject and to each other. Color intervals are created which form both solidity and flexibility.”
