Kitchen Projects at Bridge Red presents “Animals”, works by Elliot Miller and Robert Flynn. Bridge Red Studios exhibits works from the late Elliot Miller and Robert Flynn in the Kitchen Projects Space, providing an intimate look at the two artists works, who among other subjects, chose to depict animals as a running theme.
Elliot Miller (1942 – 2003)
A Miami native, Elliot Miller held studios in Opa Locka, North Miami, and eventually Brooklyn, New York from 1976 until Miller’s untimely death in 2003. Miller’s medium was wood with which he worked with an unbridled energy, roughing out large blocks of wood with a chainsaw and finishing with chisels and other traditional wood working tools.
His early works in Miami consisted in abstract forms as well as the figure. Paradoxically, after his move to Brooklyn and an altogether urban setting in 1991, he became interested in carving woodland creatures including marmots, hares, bears, possums, and some domesticated cats.
Two freestanding sculptures from this period are paired with the paintings of Robert Flynn.
Robert Flynn (1967 – 2007)
Robert Flynn lived and worked in Miami for many years before moving to Vermont in 2007 where he tragically and unexpectedly died from a heart attack at the age of 39. A prolific artist who worked in series, Bridge Red is currently showing works from his paintings, Cows dating back from 1994 through 1996. Culling 12 pieces from our inventory of paintings representing over 100 different breeds, each one is presented on an 11 x 11 inch square canvas.
Bridge Red Studios/Kitchen Projects is honored to present this selection of works from these artists, Elliot Miller and Robert Flynn.
The exhibition concludes with a closing brunch from noon to 3 pm on Sunday, May 21st. The exhibition can be viewed by appointment between these events by calling 305-978-4856.
