In the early 1970's Lowell Miller experienced a near-total transformation as a result of Reichian and Bioenergetic practices, and almost immediately began showing sculpture in New York and publishing poetry in Rolling Stone magazine. Disenchanted with the art world scene, he moved to the Hudson Valley, continuing his exploration of sculpture and text while at the same time pursuing a successful career in business. Mentored for many years by Wade Saunders (sculptor, director of Sculpture at R.I.S.D. and long-time sculpture critic for Art in America), Miller has pushed to capture the somatic side of emotion and aesthetic feeling, seeking a vocabulary of object and gesture that provides a "body" for the inarticulable. He seeks to infuse an object with primal experience of the sort that's common to all of us but often obscured by our civilized concerns and attentions. We've come far from our aboriginal ancestors, and yet we retain much of their consciousness and un-consciousness. Reaching for contact with that elemental part of us is the subject of Miller's work.
