Little Family in the Spotlight

This is a giant triptych--each of the three paintings are six feet tall and almost four feet wide. They were a big part of my thesis show called Little Family which was based on tiny sculptures I made and used as models. Here I wanted to play around with scale, showing them against the baseboard and near an electrical outlet. I placed them each in a spotlight--it reminded me of reading The Borrowers with my son, a book about teeny people living their lives unnoticed in the normal-sized world. In the photo of the painting hanging at the show, notice the actual sculptures in the glass case to the left of the painting.
