This afternoon we welcomed Jessica Miller to the show! About her pairing she said “I chose to pair Pi with Wax Tailor’s “Que Sera” because they both have a new interpretation of old ideas. With Que Sera it is the compilations of old sound bits that elude to a since of nostalgia, with pi it is the use of a mathematical concept to form figurative images. Both attempt use repetition and rhythm in a contemporary way.”
Jessica currently attends Bellarmine University and will be having her senior thesis opening reception tonight (March 28, 2014) at the McGrath Gallery on Bellarmine University’s campus. You won’t want to miss it! There will also be a gallery talk on March 30th from 7-9PM and the show itself will be on view through April 12th.
Jessica’s work often incorporates conceptual undertones, traditional techniques, and a manipulation of common liquids as art. Miller says she is inspired by the complexities of the human behavior, the figurative works of Norwegian painter Odd Nerdrum, and various architectural theories.
“The series I am working on are depictions of both mathematical concepts and the representation of pi. They describe the infinity of pi as a mathematical constant which is the ratio of a circles’ circumference to its diameter,” Miller explains.
Miller currently works at the Louisville Visual Art Association as the Administrative Assistant. She received the Gabrielle Norton Scholarship in Fine Arts 2013 and has her work on display at the McGrath Gallery on Bellarmine University’s campus until April 12th, 2014.
