Re: Miniature Sculpture
For me, the "miniature-ness" of art that is excessively tiny becomes the only subject. And while aggressively pursued tedium is quite the physical challenge, I would suppose that there is more worry over the development of the require steady-hand and skill and not enough worry over the bigger aesthetic issue which is the consideration-of and interaction-with significant form. Besides, ideas come in ALL sizes. Why would anyone execute them all just tiny.
And yes Glenn...it is indeed relative. Are we due to have a new discussion about the nature of "scale" and "size" (and scope). Maybe.
