Brightly colored elephant painting

Craig Anthony Miller, Dolphy Trio 1/3 (2019). Mixed Medium.

My work can be seen as a moving meditation on the very nature of transformation and the notable significance of challenge as a rites of passage to sacred change.

Concerned with how we ultimately face the difficulties of life, my work offers visual cues that remind us of the fortitude of our humanity and inherent capacity to face, navigate and ultimately transcend all limitations.

My art combines my early fascination with stained glass and the energy of the urban landscape with symbols of freedom, strength, resilience and wellbeing. Using animal totems, religious symbols, spiritual philosophies, sacred texts, and folklore, I create abstract figurative works of art that document the important movements of life; getting up, taking flight, standing strong and more.

My works, in the form of paintings, graphic design, and art direction represent visual mantras that inspire hope, evoke aspiration, and encourage freedom from the norm.
