Sara Nightingale Gallery presents Monica Banks, Pulchritude and Paton Miller, Paintings

Friday, June 29th, 2018
Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Monica Banks, Pulchritude and Paton Miller, Paintings, opening Saturday, June 30 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The exhibition runs through July 26.
 
Pulchritude, a word that sounds ugly, means beauty. Monica Banks’ latest series of porcelain confections and celebratory cakes embrace this paradox. Rendered in sumptuous pastel hues, her ceramic monuments to domesticity examine ugliness, tragedy, creepiness and asymmetry, qualities that beauty must inherently contain in order to be deeper and more meaningful than mere “prettiness”. As usual, Banks’ reflections on problems in the world at large inform her depiction of tiny figures within and on top of the confections. Banks gives these disenfranchised creatures attention they would not otherwise receive. She has said, “All moments deserve a tribute, whether those moments are hopeful or tragic.” Her cakes continue to serve as empathic memorials honoring animals and humans, as well as objects and mythical characters. 
 
Paton Miller’s oil paintings depict ordinary scenes enhanced by his unique inventiveness. Inspired by world travel, as well as domesticity and family life, Miller employs an earthy, neutral pallet, reinforcing his connection to nature and the outdoors. Human figures, as well as animals and invented “species”, populate his canvases. These subjects bring to life Miller’s allegorical narratives that reference other places in other times. Several motifs appear repeatedly in his works: waves depicted as triangular blocks of color, mules and other animals carrying objects on their backs, boats, water and exotic foreign landscapes. When Miller travels, he paints the people he meets as a way to get to know them.
