Why do WEE#RESIST?

Miniature art, small art, can have a big impact. One of the main reasons for this is because miniature art is hard to resist. It is easy in a museum of large paintings and sculptures to miss so many works because they all demand equal attention. But miniature works make you look: they draw you in and reward your attention. You have to get close and “enter” the works to get anything out of them.

And so the “WEE#RESIST” exhibit at Darren Scala’s gallery in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, offers in a tiny space some big ideas that can get lost in larger venues or with larger creations. A fine description of the works and the artists involved can be found at the gallery’s website: http://www.dthomasfineminiatures.com/weeresist. Here I want to provide images of the works and how they appear to the viewer, accompanied by some little comments.
