In the Sun Porch, Riad Miah creates a multi-part installation of double-sided, oil and acrylic, rectangular paintings on Dura-Lar. He traces light throughout the calendar year to portray a sense of time, with each piece representing a single month. Incorporating the colors and atmosphere of the landscape, the work explores the artist’s continued interest in light as a medium. Referencing art history as well as his personal narrative, Miah’s installation examines mark-making and the metaphoric implications of shape.
