German artist Gerold Miller works on the borderline between sculpture, relief, painting and installation. Millers «Ready-mades», «hard:edged» and «instant vision» works are experimental designs that argue with the minimal (form as constellation) and archieve the maximum (space as picture). Coolness and coldness, one of the primary interests of classical abstract «cold art» since Theo van Doesburg, finds in Miller its antagonist in the overheating of superimosed colored spotlights, a repeatedly employed excess of visual offerings.

Miller erects a bridge across the abyss that art created to seperate itself from design, fashion, music, etc. to realms hostile to art definition. In the recently realized cooperation with John Armleder, optical flooding and visual concepts from Op-Art play precisely the role that their interior-decorating surrogate claimed in the 1960s and 1970s. Millers wall floor and room objects in public and private spaces are space-space pictures in the best sense, because they dare to grasp for the hole – of the world, of space, of truth, and of the chaos, ramified like rhizomes – that we can live.
