Coming up in June, ZIA Gallery presents a powerful exhibition featuring two outstanding artists, renowned photographer Zoriah Miller and remarkable photorealistic painter Roland Kulla.
Expect a moving body of work from Zoriah Miller, who is listed by Ranker.com for 2013 as one of the world’s most famous photojournalist. Zoriah Miller’s humanitarianism is evident through his remarkable photography. Zoriah says of his work “I believe very strongly in the power of the still image, and I choose to focus my work on conflict, crisis and disasters because I want my work to educate people and motivate them to better the world.” Zoriah’s work has taken him to over 85 countries. He is the recipient of numerous awards, and his work is included in major publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal among countless others.
Zoriah is now the inspiration for a new movie A Thousand Times Goodnight starring Juliette Binoche. Zoriah photographed all the still images for the film and coached Binoche in her role as photojournalist. The film, directed by Erik Poppe, is scheduled to be released this autumn. Take advantage of this opportunity to view Zoriah’s photography and meet the artist at ZIA Gallery. Zoriah will be flying in from Rio for the opening reception.
Chicago artist Roland Kulla will be showing a new body of work focusing on the grandeur and complex structure of bridges. This time he chooses railroad bridges from Blue Island to Maryland, St. Louis to St. Charles. He has an eye for interesting plays of color, form and texture. His paintings are packed with detail. Of two new works depicting views of St. Louis’ MacArthur Bridge, Kulla says they are “over the top – even for me!” Kulla is represented in corporate and private collections including having 5 large works in the Metropolitan Club in Willis Tower.
This exhibition is not to be missed. Both artists will be in attendance at the opening reception. All are welcome. The gallery is located two short blocks from the Winnetka Metra Station.
