Mighty Minis
Curator Suzan Shutan
In the art world where bigness reigns, thirty contemporary artists from United
States and abroad have come together to reflect and respond to working small.
For centuries, artists have utilized pint-size scales to depict and explore
cherished, esteemed, and intimate subjects. The contemporary miniature can be
seen as an approach to art-making that marries craft and concept with gemlike
details of tiny treasures. Despite our fast-paced world, small works require giving
time for reflection and thought. The reward may be the element of surprise.
There are many reasons for an artist to favor working small. There can be
practical limitations regarding space, time or resources, but in the case of the
works presented here, working small is the objective. There is also the reality
that few collectors can accommodate only large-sized work. The focus of this
exhibit is on the process of abstract painting, the exploration of work in two and
three dimensions, on traditional and modern approaches, the space between
craft and concept, and content and form.
