Zachary Miley

“…Collectively, Miley’s work could be seen as a discussion on the sublime. This suggestion is quickly dismissed because of the physical tactility (which is distant in the drawings, clear and personable in the sculptures) of the artist’s efforts and the kind of intellectual forcefulness that a viewer might indistinctly feel. The subject matter of the work, whether it be a beached whale (Candide), an old window (Window (with metonym)), or otherwise, reforms itself as a dynamic element, a humble component that prevents and forces the viewer to examine their own physical and cognitive position, which then becomes the new subject of the installation. For the artist, the work functions as an exploration of his own psyche – of logical reasoning in concert with irrational dedication to craft.”
