As the year draws to a close I am planning projects for 2014. During 2012 I developed a project entitled Inscapes and like most of these series of images they are never ever finished. The learning curve for my diorama work is a lifelong process and armed with the knowledge I gleaned from that project I am hoping to realise my ambition of producing small installations incorporating these landscapes that will stand alone and will be viewable in a purpose built cabinet produced by a friend of mine. Similar to a peep show cabinet the design and decoration will hopefully enhance the contents, very much a work in progress I’ll post details as it develops.
The image shown here is a prototype for an extension of the Bleak House series, It normally takes several sessions to get the image I am looking for. This set is around 15″x15″x12″ high.
