Diorama Exhibition at the Museum of Art & Design, NY

Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities features the work of some of my favorite artists who work in miniature: Lori Nix (image below), James Casebere, Joe Fig, and Paolo Ventura


Lori Nix, Violin Repair Shop

From the website: "Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities illuminates the phenomenal renaissance of interest among artists worldwide in constructing small-scale hand built depictions of artificial environments and alternative realities, either as sculpture or as subjects for photography and video. These are worlds of "magic realism" conceived and realized through intense engagement with materials, attention to detail, and concern for meaningful content. In this exhibition, the works are presented as dioramas, models, snow globes, and site specific installations, as well as through photographs and video."
