Birth Place
Culburra, NSW, Australia
Sculptor born in 1979 in Culburra, NSW, Dale Miles later moved to Sydney. Between 1998-99 Miles studied a Certificate of Foundry Metal Casting at Wollongong TAFE. In 2000 he travelled to Italy to study Ancient and Renaissance Sculpture and Painting. In 2001 he received an Advanced Diploma of Fine Arts from Wollongong TAFE and in 2006 he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) from the National Art School, Sydney. Miles worked as Assistant Sculptor to Dennis Adams OAM between 1993 and 2001. Miles uses carved wood and found objects to create sculptures which are not always what they seem. He creates alternate realities where the natural world takes on elements of the man made and vice versa. Miles works across scale and creates both extremely large and small works. In 2005 Miles was artist-in-residence at Sydney Olympic Park and in the same year won the Bowral Art Award. In 2002 he won the Waverly Art Prize and in 2001 he was awarded the West Wollongong TAFE Sculpture Prize. In 2000 Miles was awarded a residency at Bundanon, NSW, and in 1999 he won first prize for sculpture at the Thirroul Seaside Arts Festival. Miles’ work is represented in many public and private collections, including the Department of Education, William Wilkins Memorial Collection, Clayton Utz Art Collection and the University of Wollongong.
