Craig’s work can be described as site specific or site sensitive. His practice has evolved from being architectural site specific in the early 1990’s, into the current more nuanced investigation into social and cultural situations. He frequently works in the exhibition space rather than a studio.
He came to prominence as part of the initial YBA generation of the early 1990s and has received the prestigious DAAD residency in Berlin and has been Gregory Fellow in Sculptural Studies with The Henry Moore Foundation at Leeds University, 1997- 2000.
Since 1995, he has been based in South West Wales which has been a major source of inspiration for his practice. He consistently exhibits nationally and internationally.
