Soft-spoken and reticent, James Miles (b. 1957, San Francisco) is known for his miniature ink drawings of quiet scenes that tell stories. Miles' scenes blur the distinctions between inside/outside, near/far, small/large, male/female, and past/present, enticing audiences into the paradoxically immense spaces of his diminutive artwork. His scenes celebrate ambiguity, particularly in the everyday.
Miles joined the Creativity Explored studio in 1998 and has had work featured in several prominent exhibitions including This Container Isn't Big Enough at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, NY, in 2004; and in 2011, Create, a traveling exhibition that originated at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
Creativity Explored is a studio-based collective in San Francisco that partners with people with developmental disabilities to celebrate and nurture the creative potential in all of us. Founded in 1983 by a psychologist and an artist, Creativity Explored has facilitated the careers of hundreds of disabled artists and serves as a model worldwide.
Creativity Explored now serves 130 artists with developmental disabilities offering art supplies, training, exhibition and sales opportunities in traditional and digital media. Creativity Explored artists have seen their work exhibited in museums, galleries, and art fairs in over 14 countries and have earned over $2 million from their art. Our life-changing programs continue to open doors of inclusion to center the personhood and creative vision of people with developmental disabilities.
Most importantly, Creativity Explored is a source of community, empowerment and dignity.
