JD MILLER Puerto Vallarta Paradise LIVE 30 x 24.jp

Share in the dynamic excitement of the Reflectionist experience in an exclusive LIVE performance by JD Miller. Join Miller in his private studio as he physically engages with the canvas, employing a sculptor's application of oil paint to manifest his signature 3-D effect. In this one-of-a-kind intimate encounter, witness Miller transform a blank canvas into a masterpiece, as he reflects the sensory environment of his studio and the live audience back into his spontaneous vision.

Miller's technique is based on a system of his artistic thought that abstractly emphasizes the mirroring of energy and human life in the universe. He has deemed this concept Reflectionism and attempts to express and physically manifest these positive - and otherwise abstract or intangible – forces, which he refers to as "three dimensional envelopes of life" through his 3-D oil paintings. Miller's production of organic forms and natural tendency toward the capturing of light is the hallmark of this sculptural oil technique.

“I call myself a Reflectionist artist because I believe that the universe mirrors each of us in a unique way. My goal as an artist is to interpret that phenomenon, and my art is a multi-dimensional reflection of life and the way I perceive the world," Miller said.

Among his achievements and honors, JD Miller received the Dallas Jesuit Museum's Artist of the Year Award in 2009, the 2008 Fashion Group International Rising Star Award, and was the Official Artist for the 40th Anniversary of Shakespeare Dallas. Additionally, Miller's work is in many private collections worldwide as well as the Meadows Museum. 

JD Miller’s Live Painting Performance will take place from 7-8 p.m. with a reception from 6-9 p.m. at Samuel Lynne Galleries.
