Edward Bear Miller's recent oil paintings explore a range of subjects: nudes, portraits, cityscapes, the mountainous Adirondacks, and the parks and waterways of his native Washington, DC. He has studied and absorbed the influences of Gustave, Courbet, George Bellows, Lucian Freud and his contemporaries. Miller is an emerging artist whose work is immediate, vivid and modern. Each piece communicates the artist's admiration for the natural world, where monumental bridges, outstretched treess, and wistful human forms serve as motifs for our current condition. Miller applies his paint rapidly and generously, producing bold, clear images that break down into gracefully abstract brushwork as the viewer steps forward. These canvases enliven the spirit and lend a fresh, local perspective to a venerable tradition.

In addition to Ed's solo show in the main gallery, Foundry Gallery II features member artists' work that has not been seen before at the Foundry. For an exciting array of work that changes monthly exhibited by a diverse group of talented artists, please be sure to visit the Foundry Gallery regularly. All work is for sale.
