Sculptures in Miniature

The Art of Thomas Doyle

Half-interred houses, blondes burying corpses, and hopeful families approaching homes that have lost the ground beneath them are some of the subjects of sculptor Thomas Doyle. Constructed in small scale and fit neatly within a bell jar, the sculptures-in-miniature are at once manageable, ethereal, dark, pristine, and, like the illusion they conjure, just short of accessible. His work was recently commissioned by the New York Times Magazine for its issue devoted to architecture. And, I'm excited to announce that his work will be featured in the next issue of Gigantic. Take a look. You will not be disappointed.
