Ours is a culture that, more often than not, values that which is the larger of whatever is being valued. A common sentiment among artists is “… if you can’t make it good, make it big; if that doesn’t work, make it REALLY big. Keep on making it bigger - someone will take notice.” Actually, as a plan to get attention, this approach works surprisingly well.
All artists do small works; these works may be studies or fully developed works that happen to be small. Often, given the sentiment above, these small works don’t get the attention they deserve when exhibited with larger works. So, here’s a show of small works. What they have in common is their relative smallness and, of course, their quality as individual works of art.
