Miles Van Rensselaer

ABOUT

Miles Van Rensselaer has exhibited professionally since 1999; his first solo show was at Heller Gallery in 2005 in NYC. His works are well-conceived juxtapositions of material and concept that lock the two together into unique sculptural form. Miles received his Bachelor’s (double-majors in Sculpture and Poetry) from Kenyon College while studying the Indonesian language, mask-making and woodcarving with Javanese and Balinese masters. Miles has since worked with many other professional artists while converting an abandoned marble quarry along the Delaware River into a modern bronze foundry and glass studio where he now lives and works. Miles exhibited monumental (4x6’) slumped/carved glass heads (presented 16’ from the ground in Navy Pier for SOFO Chicago and emerging from the floor of the “grand entrance” of Art Palm Beach. Newer works are currently on view in the 41th Annual International Glass Invitational, Habatat Galleries, Michigan and the International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa (travelling Japan into 2014.)
