Nathan Miner is a multidisciplinary artist and creative technologist advancing classical fine art through interdisciplinary collaboration, contemporary fabrication methodologies and new media technologies. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design’s Sculpture program, Miner’s practice centers on expanding the boundaries of traditional disciplines to build artistic experiences that operate as raw architecture for the imagination to explore the phenomenology of self. With overlapping interests in psychology, neuroscience and philosophy, Miner’s work explores deep time and the roots of embodied experience through project-based experimentation and research questioning the roles and possibilities of art broadly as creative innovation, experience manufacturing and improvisational learning.
Miner studied printmaking at the Kansas City Art Institute and painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago prior to receiving his BFA in sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design in 1999. Following his degree he studied printmaking at The New School in New York and architecture at Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles. Miner grew up in the Midwest and has lived in the UK and East Africa, his research and enthusiasm for crossing disciplines and cultures boundaries have led him to travel extensively: throughout the U.S. and Mexico, Europe, Asia, India and Africa.
Over the past decade he has exhibited his inventive surfaces and mural-scale installations in galleries, alternative art spaces and universities throughout New York and New England, including recent installations at Montserrat College of Art and the Museum of Art at University of New Hampshire. His exhibitions have been reviewed by the Boston Globe and his installations featured in Artpulse and Artscope magazines. He has received fellowships, residencies and grants from the Vermont Studio Center and the St. Botolph Club Foundation.
