Deathly Repose of Poseidon

Even Gods yield to time. This diorama shows Poseidon’s deathly repose at the bottom of an anchovy tin among the shipwrecks deep in the Dead Sea.

 

Lost at Sea

 

I made this piece to auction at the Chesapeake Roller Derby fundraiser (tomorrow night as of this writing, if you are interested). I had a lot of fun making the fluid waves and the smallest Jolly Roger ever and the first mermaid to show up. The diorama is in a Cento anchovies tin. It’s kind of the opposite of an Altoids tin.

 

Up next, working on several pieces for an April group show in DC.

A Persistence of Memory

So. There’s a really big art show at work later today and I submitted this piece – a triptych called A Persistence of Memory. The three dioramas are connected, and there’s more detail about each one in previous posts: Suspense, The Clock and A Good Death. Note: I added a couple of images to The Clock post showing the finished base.

I  earned an honorable mention AND I’ve found a very effective way display dioramas in a public space.

Where…to…next?
