I havent posted in so loooong! But just so you cant say I've been slacking, I've brought some art with me to show you.
Here is a diorama room I created in october as a special commission for a friend...
It took many hours of work and lots of fun. The creation of rich contained worlds has been a passion and pursuit of mine for many years now.
Here is a "behind the scenes" image of the photoshoot which took place inside my "Moss Bed Valley", an indoors moss bed in my home studio.
I like to build a world in detail. I enjoy it so much. I am fascinated by the layers of depth that can emerge from a world or space or environment once you look at it at close range and pick appart its possibilities. And so in this project I added many layers of details, so that there would be mini artworks contained within the artwork; worlds within worlds.
For example, I made this abstract mixed media painting to hang in the back wall:
here's a detail:
And in the library I added cool things, like this replica of his kid's drawing...
...and this portrait done in pencil from a wedding picture.
But one of the funnest details to add, was this hidden miniature book...
I call this book "Illustrated Imaginary History of Energy and Matter"
Thanks a lot for visiting my little world, hope you enjoyed!
