It’s difficult to gauge scale in the work of Petros Chrisostomou. The giant shoes seem so detailed; the galleries look immaculate. If you want to know I’ll spoil it for you…it’s the galleries that are tiny. Chrisostomou uses small mundane objects as the center of his photographs. He places these in the middle of amazingly detailed miniature galleries. Chrisostomou painstakingly gives attention to lighting, scale, perspective, and detail. The realism of his sets force the eye and mind to alternate between small and large scales, doubting each in the process.
Slinkachu has continued to carry out his poetic, mini street installations since we last checked in with him. The British artist continues to up the ante with each new, ephemeral piece. Employing miniature figurines and various objects, the artist stages tiny dramas (often humorous, and socially aware) in site-specific public locations. Click through to see some newer images of his “Little People Project” (previously) and some selections from the slightly older “Inner City Snail” series.
Enter the miniature world of Carole Epps. Sinister. Cute. Dark. Mysterious. Wabbits & Mickey Mouse. Seems like a fun and slightly scary world to live in. I wouldn’t mind staying for a while.
