La Granada is a work from The Central Sun, a meditation, communication, and visual accompaniment to the sacred and spiritual journeys we are all on in our waking dreams. This series of contemporary painterly works evoke Orishas, spirit animals, temples, pyramids, religious iconography, earth and sky, and the central figure of the sun. Each piece begins with one round mark — the central sun — and expands from there, creating its own non-linear narrative as it takes shape. The lines of the pieces in this series could be the markings of both ancient or future people. The Central Sun communicates a sense of the mystic while opening a window to the confusion and order of life here within reach and in other realms.
The original painting is part of The Central Sun, Miles’ larger series in which each piece begins with a round mark representing the center of the solar system. From that starting Sun flows the rest of the image, a story orbiting its star, unraveling nonlinearly, visual events that evolve indirectly, in reverse or in parallel, overlap, collide, or segue. There’s a dreamlike quality to this sort of circuitous route. Like the odd imprecise figure one remembers from a dream, your mind might find recognizable forms in the lines: a cross, perhaps a fish, maybe a flower and stem. These are purposefully suggestive, and intentionally incomplete, defined lines coalescing in an amorphous shape.
