Through the Looking Glass opened at London's Cob Gallery this week, showcasing work from over 40 modern international and contemporary artists who have worked in miniature, including Lynn Chadwick, Kitty Finer, Nancy Fouts, Alexander Calder and James Capper.
Kitty Finer, Mini Bar, 2018
The exhibition title references Lewis Carroll’s sequel to ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ in which Alice returns to a fantastical world through a mirror. Taking this as its germ, the multidisciplinary works included in Through the Looking Glass activate the viewer’s sensory perceptions of scale across two and three dimensions, compounding a complex human psychological fascination with both the possibility, and seeming impossibility of the miniature pitted against the scale of our bodies.
Kitty Finer, Pezants, 2018
Lynn Chadwick, Three Small Watchers Miniatures, 1973
The exhibition runs until 19th January 2019,
Wednesday-Friday 12-6pm, Saturday 12-5pm
