Michael Miller – Landscapes & Oceanscapes

Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company will be exhibiting new oil paintings by artist Michael Miller throughout March. Miller moved from Los Angeles to Anderson in 2007 and has a studio in the Union Building.  His new paintings are large and colorful landscapes and oceanscapes.

Miller is known nationally as a painter of golf courses and he is meticulously faithful to the sweeping outdoor scenes he paints.  As a former golf professional, his career is an unusual cross between the sporting world and the art world.  In the 1980s and 90s he was Head Golf Professional at both the MountainGate Country Club in Los Angeles and the Riviera Country Club, Pacific Palisades, CA.  He learned painting from Gene Mako, who was a Davis Cup tennis champion and the son of the great American painter Bartholomew Mako.  “Miller’s painting style is reminiscent of Mako who used ‘soft edges’ to make images that are more like the way human eyes see the world,” says Gordy owner Carl Schafer.  “This allows viewers to imagine the sounds and smells that would be present in the real place.”

Miller’s painting career includes One-Person shows at both the United States Golf Association Museum in Far Hills, NJ, and the World Golf Hall of Fame Museum in St. Augustine, FL   He has illustrated two books, “The Art of Golf Design” and “The Golden Age of Golf Design” for golf historian and author, Geoff Shackelford.
