Australian artist Kendal Murray uses everyday objects to create playful miniature sculptures of tiny figurines and objects engaged in fun scenes. The small worlds come from our dream states and how we are able to play with our own identity in these dream states. To her, the miniatures serve as metaphors for intuitive thought.
Constructing the tiny sculptures is quite the task. After she has chosen her figures and the objects she will place them in assembly begins. The figures are first dipped in glue and then carefully placed using tweezers onto the makeup mirror, small purse, or whatever other strange canvas she has chosen. By confining her subjects to such a small setting, Kendal focuses the viewer intently and allows them to focus on entering the dream state of the world she has created.
