Anthony Miler Biography

Born in 1982 and currently based in Brooklyn, New York, Anthony Miler received his MFA from The City College of New York, CUNY in 2008. While Miler initially focused on abstract expressionism – giving form to inner feelings and emotions on canvas – his mode of expression has changed dramatically in recent years. By applying a mixture of powder and liquid pigments, he renders his minimal, architectural lines in soft and deep hues. Referring to the forms in which an “eye” that gazes straight ahead are set, Miler has commented that they “are not necessarily birds. It’s not that I want to paint birds in particular, but I have long been fascinated by their evolution from ancient animals and by the beauty of their form”. As a result, there is a stillness to Miler’s paintings of beautiful “birdlike” forms, which quietly but powerfully draw the viewer in. Miler’s recent solo exhibitions include ‘Nine Paintings in a Room’, ZieherSmith Gallery (New York, 2019); ‘Uptown Top Ranking’, Thierry Goldberg Gallery (New York, 2016); ‘In the Desert’, Rod Barton (London, 2015). He has also participated in group exhibitions primarily in New York, as well as in Denmark and the U.K.d
