Miniature Sculptures by Alan WolfsonJuxtapoz // Monday, 25 Apr 2011
We have been fascinated by mini sculptures after we visited Tracey Snelling's wonderful exhibit at Rena Branstein in San Francisco earlier this year. Now we find Alan Wolfson's fantastic miniature sculptures of urban spaces, where lighting, magazine racks, dressing rooms, and bar stools are considered. Some of his miniature pieces take over 18 months to complete!
This first piece here, "Peepworld," is Wolfson's largest to date, sitting at 17 1/2 x 22 1/4 x 26 inches. Look for the penny below to get an idea of scale.

This piece is called "Canal St Cross-Section," in which Wolfson say it is 5 pieces built into one box, sitting at 27 x 23 1/2 x 19 1/2 inches.
