The Demented Dollhouses of Marc Giai-Miniet

By on March 27, 2012

French painter Marc Giai-Miniet started creating these disturbing shadowbox dioramas rather late in his career. He painstakingly crafts each nightmarish dollhouse with painstakingly detailed existential metaphors, creating a strangely familiar yet surreal and creepy miniature environment. Recurring themes include libraries, furnaces, laboratories, submarines and intestine-like tubing in lonely, decaying spaces.

    This really resonates with me. Make a dreamscape rather than try to paint it.
