Sculptures don’t always need to be gigantic; if a miniature work of art expresses its intent, point and significance in a conceivable and artistic manner, it’s undeniably better than those oversized, incomprehensible pieces that fail to stick to or simply tend to draw away from the basic idea of their creation. Hampshire, UK-based artist Nic Joly projects his observations through miniature sculpture works made from upcycled toy figures, paper, clay, wire and other stuff. And, as mentioned in the beginner, the minuscule artworks succeed in expressing small details of life.
Housed inside glass fronted box frame, each miniature sculpture stands at a less than one and a half inch tall. Justo to make his art more appealing than it is otherwise, Joly provides them with self-descriptive titles. Those who wish to see his unique “small wall hung pieces of theatre” in person should head over to The Woolff Gallery in London, where they are on display through the end of January. Or else, visit his website, i.e. Under Foot, to see miniature art sculptures in all their vastness.
