This is the first edition of the new ad campaign for Gill Miller Art. I think the visual contradiction and the tongue-in-cheek message can be very effective in getting the point across.

What is art if not the invention and reinvention of a subject, a genre? My new series, The Art of the Table, is about painting cute little side tables into abstract works of art, and then taking the art form to another level by photographing the tables from different angles and making an art piece from the imagery. The first composition that I'm showing you is the table with the blue curvaceous legs above, that begged to be made into a sculptural piece of art.

A wall in my Studio
I do love color! It is what makes my world go 'round. This photo graphically shows my new art, Bottom, with my art style of the previous 2 years, Top. It's a dramatic difference. And who says
there is no such thing as Evolution?

New Direction #4
My newest piece measures 36x36 and continues in the new vein that my art is going. Even with the differences from New Directions 1 & 2, I am keeping some similarities to keep these all in the family. I am almost finished now with #5 and will post that shortly. I have also completed some new Functional Art pieces - round side tables that were given the high color, abstract art, high gloss treatment.

It's kind of funny how my new art style came about, which is proving to be hugely popular on Social Media. I was outside painting the other day and I saw on the paper drop cloth underneath the painting that I was working on, a pattern in several colors that immediately struck me as the future of my art. I guess that is what's called a revelation. It's much more organic than the type of art that I have been working on for several years. I actually painted over, at that moment, the painting that I was working on, and started a new one, the one at top here. I am looking forward to starting another painting in this style today.

#YouTube video made by Gill Miller about his love for #art, as an artist, and his love for tables. Combining the two makes Table Love. It's a love story unlike any other, cultivated over years first as an Interior Designer and the love of furniture, especially tables, not really sure why just tables, and then in the past 7 years or so, as an artist. The marriage is expanding to create a new take on an old old art form, #painted #furniture. In this new iteration, #abstract #art becomes the horizontal surfaces of the table to make a piece of #Functional #Art. Stay tuned for more examples down the line as they are added to Gill's inventory. These actually are for sale. And actually he has sold some to neighbors and friends already.

I am now on YouTube. Yay! Not sure what took me so long. This is my premiere video that I am excited to share on my blog. I had a lot of fun making this video which is called "how to...Gill Miller art. Got Art? Take a look and make a comment. The link on YouTube is https://youtu.be/JVgw17rjI6M. Be sure to give me a Thumbs Up and to Subscribe to my channel, Art Exploration. People on YouTube have promised me that I will get better at this. Just like anything that we practice, we do. So, thank you for looking at my art in video format. The future is clear, and it is here.
