In our hyperbolic times, the dioramas with figurines capture the essence of our polarized society by engagingly creating a fanciful world for the viewer to enter. The fabricated pageant is built with a variety of media (paper sculpture, wire, and paint). The work is a mash-up of time periods, theatrically posing two factions of human existence.
The Reds, placed in the stylish 18th century, have all the money, the best stuff and seemingly steer events. The larger Greys faction, living in a dystopian setting are the doers, they have work but little else. So who’s on top? Revolutions echo down the years, philosophers extol the dignity of work, everybody wants riches and leisure. How do we cope?
