To create artwork in boxes or under domes enhances the impression of creating a small world. Something that has always fascinated me. When I see miniatures, especially dioramas or scenes, I am instantly drawn in. It is escapism. Escaping to this tiny world where nothing can harm you and you are in control. Is that what they mean when they describe dioramas as magical?
Placing these miniature scenes in old boxes and drawers adds additional layers to the work. each container brings its own associations and history.
