A solo exhibition by artist Nick Miller will be opened at Wexford County Council on October 19.

The exhibition which runs until November 20 will be officially launched at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 23.

The exhibition in the County Buildings will present a selection of Miller's larger scale landscape works from 2004 to 2013 from both the acclaimed Truchikscapes and Yard series, including a number of works not seen in Ireland before.

In portraiture, still life or landscape, Miller works from the same simple premise; that he encounters his subject directly through the act of painting, and that the resulting work is seen to be the remains of that meeting.

His work has an intense physicality that reflects the energy he brings to the painted encounter and the demands of addressing present reality. His work feeds off that intensity, and attempts to hold the urgency of that intangible connection to his subject in paint.

For further information on the artist or exhibition please contact Philip Knight, Assistant Staff Officer, The Arts Department, Wexford County Council, Carricklawn, Wexford on 053 9196369 or email
