Brent Miller was only six. But he remembers like it was yesterday.
He vividly remembers looking at a photo of Dali's "Anthromorphic Cupboard with Drawers" (also known as "Lady with Drawers").
And, from that moment on, he was hooked. Hooked on the different colors, hooked on the different textures, hooked on the different feelings the painting evoked.
And, perhaps most of all, hooked on the way that the artist had allowed his imagination to run free, without any self-imposed (or society-imposed) constraints.
Now, many years later, Brent Miller allows his own imagination to run free, with whimsical forms, textures, and colors, and combining elements as disparate as realism, surrealism, and what he calls "Abstract Fusion." And the results are stunning.
Mr. Miller is a graduate of the Fort Lauderdale Art Institute. His work has been shown in a variety of juried art shows in the Northeast and in Florida. Some of it hangs in faraway countries, and some of it hangs here in the U.S. Yet, he still continues to hone and refine his craft, attending courses in advanced techniques given by noted painters.
Brent Miller's art is genuine, from the heart and like nothing you've ever seen before.
Welcome to my World!
Some people day dream, I like to create my dreams. Leaving the daily pressures of life, I find and bring you into my world of whimsy and color, reflecting an uplifting and positive thoughts and moods in my art. Some paintings have life messages in them, others purely decorative. All are original concepts from the heart rendered in a fine art quality.
I like to paint with oils on self prepped panels, which I do multi layers of gesso, sanding between layers for a slick surface which allows me total control of my brush marks. I use a glazing technique to build the proper amount depth and richness to the art. This series is called Flowers of the Mind. My clients and the public have told me the art is unique, attention getting and thought provoking. Definitely conversational pieces, which is my world!
Brent lives in Coral Springs, Florida with his wife Barbara and their two children, Michelle and Justin. He accepts commissions for his original works, and may be reached at (954) 755-3657.
