The aim of the artist for this collection was to create a series of artworks that would resonate with adults that had grown up reading the Harry Potter books and watching the movies.

About The Artworks
The artworks featured in this exhibition succeed in encapsulating Stuart McAlpine Miller’s interpretation of the story, depicted in his signature style using his vibrant selection of colour, his expert portraiture and unique approach to layering techniques and image blending.
Here’s a sneak preview of a few of the artworks from the Revelations: A Portrait Of Magic Collection:
A Complex Nature
Amongst the many illusions, reality can also be found, the artist urges us to look there for our truth and more importantly, our future.
In this artwork, we see Harry Potter’s eye deliberately framed to centre the viewer’s gaze and shining forth from his eyes, omniscience that belies his age.
The key imagery that has been layered including the Hogwarts Express, the Phoenix and the sign for Platform 9 ¾ give the artwork a transportive nature. The suggested arch of a gothic stained glass window framing the characters evokes a religious theme that continues throughout the collection.
Strength In Numbers
The overall language of this artwork is suggestive of the ambiguity of the possible future. The dawn of a new era has yet to be defined but is already upon us.
Captured in a kaleidoscopic labyrinth of colour and light, we see three of the main characters from the Wizarding World portrayed amongst a repeated triangular pattern that reinforces their resolute arrangement as a trio. The power of three is also reinforced by the geometric tessellation in the background.
With poise and confidence, the power of three shines forth, ready to navigate and overcome any obstacles in their path.
The Hand Of Wisdom
The benevolent figure of Professor Dumbledore is depicted in this artwork engulfed in a crowded world of memories.
Darkness dominates the scene with the occasional glimmer of light; the true story of his life is written on his steely gaze and determined stance. The implied pathways represent a convergence of past and present, a theme central to the relationship between Harry Potter and Professor Dumbledore.
