Nathan Miner is a multidisciplinary artist working in traditional media while engaging innovative technologies and interdisciplinary collaboration. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design’s program in Sculpture, Miner’s practice centers on expanding the boundaries of traditional disciplines to explore the architecture of imagination and the phenomenology of self-reflection. With overlapping interests in psychology, neuroscience and philosophy, Miner’s work explores ideas of deep time and the boundaries of sensorial experience broadly through project-based experimentation and research into the possibilities of art as improvisational innovation and 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, and is currently pursuing a Masters of Science at Northeastern University's College of Art, Media and Design in Game Science and Design.
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.
