Abstract painting is the root and the soul of Nathan Miner’s interdisciplinary practice. His projects range across, and play between, the disciplines of photography, printmaking, sculpture and digital media, and culminate into hybrid-paintings and installations. Originally from Colorado, Miner began his studies in the Midwest, at the Kansas City Art Institute and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago prior to receiving his BFA in Sculpture from RISD and relocating to the East coast. He has attended residencies at The Vermont Studio Center, Montserrat College of Art, and Mass MoCA, and he is currently a Visual Arts Fellow of the St. Botolph Club. Having exhibited extensively throughout New England and New York, Miner’s work has been reviewed in the Boston Globe, ArtScope and Art Pulse magazines.


Faces, is a balancing act to consider the opposing structures of dynamic fluidity and rigid form within the same object, inhabiting the same space. Held on point, the platonic volume rests in an unnatural position lending a precariousness to its otherwise stable and static form. The artwork questions the boundaries of the terms that define it: as a painting and a sculpture, as an image and an object, as philosophical and whimsical, it asks for definition while remaining unknown.
