    Detailed Description : The sculpture of Gino Miles combines, in a contemporary context, his love and energy for both objects found in nature and classical sculpture. The balance of a piece in relationship to its spatial position is a critical component of his work, often creating a tension between space and sculpture. Primarily working with fabricated bronze and stainless steel, each piece is unique unto itself; no two are identical. ​ His recent series of knot sculptures were inspired by observing how different plants - mainly morning glories, peas and sweet peas - tied themselves into knots and tangles enabling them to climb. While his first experiments with the knot form were stylized images from cut vine fragments (giving the impression of figures twisting in anxiety) his new focus on the knot have a bold abstract quality. They are deliberations in space and form and intertwining elements; statements in their own right rather than emulating movement found in nature. ​ Miles currently lives and works in Santa Fe, NM. He earned his MA from the University of Northern Colorado and conducted additional studies at the Universita per i Stranierie, Perugia, Italy, and the Accademia di Belle Arti, Firenze, Italy. ​ His large scale works are prominently featured in many permanent and private collections throughout the world, including the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas (2013), Evansville Museum, Disney Corporate Headquarters, the cities of Cerritos and Napa, CA, the City of Edmond, OK, and Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, KY, among others.

    Biography : A veteran of the British Pop Art movement, David Spiller grew up in its defining period. Juxtaposing pop culture with urban sensibilities, he created his own unique style of fine art that is distinctly "David Spiller." As Martin Gayford wrote in his catalogue essay for Spiller’s 2008 exhibition at Beaux Arts London: "David Spiller's pictures are much more than simply messages. A lot of them are also, an art historian might say, complex colour-field abstractions. […] To make works of this type, Spiller uses a technique that is, as far as I know, unique. He 'floats' the pigment onto pieces of canvas that he then sews together with incredible neatness and precision, so the final work is a sort of combine, made not with glue, like a collage, but with needle and thread. […] no one has ever, as far as I know, fitted geometrically precise square and oblongs of colour together in this fashion, like a precision-engineered quilt..." David Spiller's place as an acclaimed artist was not achieved by happenstance. David was trained in fine art and an early student of Frank Auerbach. He studied at the Sidcup School of Art (1957), Beckenham School of Art (1958-1962), and the Slade School of Art (1962-1965). During his distinguished career, Spiller had solo exhibits in over 10 countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Spain and the United States). His work was exhibited at notable institutions such as the Rattingen Museum and Mannheim Kunstverein (Germany), Museum Van Bommel van Dam and Museum Utrecht (Holland), Museum Espace Belleville and Artcurial (Paris), the Royal West of England Academy (UK), and the Cornell Museum (Florida, US). His work is also in important public and corporate collections which include Hanwon Museum (Seoul), Foundation Carmignac Gestion (Paris), Harley Gallery Welbeck, Collection UCL, Morgan Stanley (Frankfort), and Belgacom Brussels. Important private collections also contain works by the artist. Whe
