About Miles Toland:
Miles' surreal paintings capture the mysterious places we visit between sleeping and waking. He invites the viewer into this liminal space by blending familiar elements of our objective world with ethereal textures and geometric patterns. The mandalas and the organic fluidity of wood grain suggest the subjects' energy extending beyond their physical bodies and into the realm of spirit. Miles approaches his art as a practice of bringing resistance into resonance, honoring the beauty in decay, and finding wisdom in nature's forms.
Miles grew his roots in the artistic city of Santa Fe and is currently making art in the woods of Nevada City. His creative juices have been squeezed from the fruits of graffiti culture, a BFA at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, live painting at festivals, and traveling around the world creating street art in places including Paris, Switzerland, Art Basel Miami, Mexico, and Canada. His mural series at the Beatles Ashram in Rishikesh has been published in the Smithsonian Magazine and The New York Times blog. Another one of his murals in India was readapted to be featured as the artwork in the second season of the AMC show Better Call Saul. Miles' work finds an even split between studio art and street art.
Opening Reception : May 14th, 5-11pm.
