Neil Miller was born in England in 1963 and immigrated with hisfamily to New Zealand in 1975. He gained a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Auckland University's Elam School of Fine Arts in 1988 and has actively exhibited and completed public and private commissions since then, while also tutoring at the Auckland School of Art.
As a sculptor, Miller has grown from metalwork on a human scaleto large scale public and private works. He has participated in anumber of major NZ and international outdoor sculptural projects including the Opanaku Arts Bridge (linking the Corban Estate to Henderson Park), Regeneration in the Sculpture Walk at the Auckland Domain and the 2004 work Here and There at the Ironbridge Open Air Museum of Steel Sculpture in Shropshire, Britain.
Miller has also contracted and organised sculptural projects for the Waitakere City Council.Miller's sculptural work is characterised by concepts of duality expressed through the antagonism of compositional elements such ascurve and straight line, void and enclosed space, the skeletal andthe whole.
Miller also works in watercolour andcollage, using these media to flex his imagination in a whimsical, pre-sculptural manner - hi s collages particularly providing a fertile ground in which Miller tests ideas for realisation insculptural form.
