Myles draws inspiration for his current body of work from his childhood growing up in the desert of Southern Utah. His sculptures are inspired by desert landscapes, and bones found in the Utah deserts. “Golden Desert” is an abstracted bone form, carved from Nero Portoro Italian Marble, which has distinctive veining with flashes of gold, tan, white and black. The sculpture’s highly polished finish enhances the characteristics of the stone and form.

Transformation is focused on the abstraction of bone structures combined with the abstraction of a desert landscape. Drawing inspiration from Myles’ experiences growing up in St. George, Utah, this piece features a movement that invokes a sense of a mix of the desert landscape, changed due to moving water and erosion over time, and the complex shapes that have a distinctive purpose in the movement of animals that inhabit that landscape.
