Mini on my mind

Between the Charles le Dray show at the Whitney and my recent discovery of the work of Shay Aaron, it seems I'm surrounded by all things miniature - and I like it! I've always been fascinated by viewing objects on a small scale, all the way back to Polly Pockets and dollhouses of my childhood. What I love even more is knowing that Charles and Shay make their work by hand, with so many precise details. Shay's work is definitely more playful and funny, whereas Charles' is much more metaphorical and philosophical - but both tap into the imagination and create something magical.
