Gino Miles, Bronze Sculpture – “El Sol”

Working in both monumental and small dimensions since the 1970s, sculptor Gino Miles (b. 1952) is inspired primarily by 20th Century European masters such as Moore, Brancusi, Archipenko, and Marini. Gino distills his love of the classical figure and objects found in nature, working with a sparse and contemporary language that embodies tranquility. Stripped of an overt narrative, Miles’ abstract forms achieve a poetic harmony of man and nature, with subtle references to both the human form and ancient cultures.

Miles’ large-scale works are prominently featured in many permanent and private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and South America, including the Evansville Museum in Indiana; the Polk Museum in FL; Disney Corporate Headquarters in Burbank, California; the Cities of Cerritos, Napa, and Edmond; and Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, Kentucky, among others.

This piece was handcrafted in New Mexico and is exemplary of Gino’s work. The bronze measures 13″ X 21″. Gino shows his work locally at Tansey Contemporary Gallery on Canyon Road.
