Myles’ Artwork

Inspired by minimal art, reductivism, and rejective art, my photography is primarily based on having the viewer experience my art without the distractions of theme and other elements of traditional photography. I use the medium of photography to create its own reality. My work’s literal presence is not intended to symbolize anything. The colors are not used to express feeling or mood, but simply to delineate space. My new work strives to evoke a response from the viewer in terms of the relationship between the various elements within each piece. I rejected the idea that art should reflect the personal expression of its creator. Lack of emotion and subconscious decision-making hide my presence and my feelings in each image.

Recently I have become fascinated by seeing light and color around glass objects.  I perceive these reflections as seeing the limits of our visual perceptions. I seek the metaphysical effects of shifting visual phenomena and am exploring this area through glass’s optical ability to bend light. Mirrors are simply a reflection of the actual object. Reflection whether in glass, or in mirrors is something that I have been exploring. The viewer assumes the physicality of a glass object, but what we accept as conclusive is at times simply a construct. The palpability of the actual object then disintegrates into the residue of sight.
