It is a dialogue with things seen and felt, because they are often inseparable. My aim has always been to make work which is compelling in its beauty, or at least intriguing, in the way that a piece of music can be. “ In 1999, Craig received a ‘Percent for Art’ commission from S.E.P.T.A., (South Eastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority) - Philadelphia’s mass transit system, for his project, “Seasons of Juniata”, which is in permanent installation at the Erie-Torresdale elevated train station, Philadelphia, PA.
