This series incorporates the idea of the miniature to pull the viewer into these little worlds. The placement of figures in tension creates a narrative quality that contributes to an overall sense of wonder. In these fictional scenes the concrete and the imaginary, the natural and the artificial become intertwined.
This series returns to themes I first explored in 1995, with the installation of Caged Chair in “Exposure and Vulnerability,” a group show at Empire Fulton Ferry State Park in Brooklyn, New York. I had been creating sculptures using domestic imagery and found architectural objects for several years. This was one of the resulting works.
