Subjective Timbre
Works by Amada Miller
Opening Wednesday, March 20
6 pm – 8 pm / FREE

Subjective Timbre is an exhibition of works based on the color dualities of Johannes Itten’s theory of color. Using naturally derived and synthetic dye processes, Miller will employ fiber and sculpture to explore an individual’s preferred color combinations. This exhibition will also present a movement-based performance influenced by Itten’s core belief system of the Mazdaznan Health & Breath Culture. Itten taught a group of stretching and posing exercises to his students on the roof of Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany from 1919 to 1923 called The Egyptian Postures, movements that are claimed to be descended directly from the Pharaohs.

Amada Miller is an artist based in San Antonio, Texas. Her work has been exhibited at Agora Gallery, AP Art Lab, Artpace San Antonio, Blue Star Contemporary, Capsule Gallery, Flight Gallery, French & Michigan, the McNay Art Museum, Palmetto Center for the Arts at Northwest Vista College, Sala Diaz, and The University of Texas at San Antonio. She recently completed a residency at Künstlerhaus Bethanien via Blue Star Contemporary’s Berlin Residency program, where she worked closely with curators and research staff at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. Future solo exhibitions include Blue Star Contemporary (San Antonio, TX), Cinnabar (San Antonio, TX), Useable Space (Milwaukee, WI) and Porcino (Berlin).
