In addition to my new adventure into a 6 ft large scale sculpture, I continue my microscope level diorama series. I really hope to make three that I want to give to a former curator of a show I did in 2011. She wanted to commission for me to make her 3 jars, but I wasn’t feeling inspired then, and I didn’t want to just make her crappy ones. Also, I didn’t want to sell any more work. Or worry about pricing or any of that. I just simplified the entire process and said nothing was for sale. I think I will just give these to her, too. I’m learning the process of letting go.
I have committed to making 15 new ones for the same show at SOMArts. Here are some dioramas that are either done or mostly done or still in progress.
