A Series of Minor Miracles is a collaborative art project based on Jan Van Eyck’s (1395-1441) Arnolfini Portrait, a quintessential expression of intimacy and domesticity in art.  In it, Jan Van Eyck describes his world with utmost delicacy and reverence.  Brian Miller and Elizabeth Duffy were working collaboratively on images that combined their sculpture and photography when this painting became the catalyst for thinking about their ideas. The meticulous way Van Eyck describes his world and the sense that each object is infused with meaning is important to the artists’ investigations.  The sculptures and photographs they are creating seek to recreate the intensity of that world within the contemporary reality of their own lives.
