i discovered the little people project by slinkachu via beatpie and my mood was instantly lifted. i’ve posted about a few similar artists (thomas doyle ; jonah samson ; amy bennett) - little people in big worlds never cease to amuse me.
My work mines the debris of memory through the creation of intricate worlds sculpted in 1:43 scale and smaller. Often sealed under glass, the works depict the remnants of things past—whether major, transformational experiences, or the quieter moments that resonate loudly throughout a life. In much the way the mind recalls events through the fog of time, the works distort reality through a warped and dreamlike lens.
Working with common themes such as transition, aging, isolation, and loss, I am interested in the fragility of relationships and the awkwardness of a group of people trying to coexist and relate to one another. To that end I create miniature 3D models to serve as evolving still lifes from which I paint detailed narrative paintings.
guys, she builds the models… and then she paints them. wow wow. visit amy bennett’s website.
