I’m no snow globe fan but there’s a lot to be said for Thomas Doyle’s detailed and imaginitive miniature dioramas.
I’m no good at describing art so I’m going to quote directly from the New York based artist himself;
The pieces’ radically reduced scales evoke feelings of omnipotence—as well as the visceral sensation of unbidden memory recall. Hovering above the glass, the viewer approaches these worlds as an all-seeing eye, looking down upon landscapes that dwarf and threaten the figures within.
I kinda agree. It’s weird (in a good sort of way) to peer down from above and look at the fate of these little figures. It’s almost like the SIMs – except real – except not.
