Our Enormous Tiny Art show, now in its 11th year, is a year-round exhibition both online and in our gallery, wholeheartedly devoted to showcasing wonderful, irresistible, and entirely original tiny art. Hundreds of individual pieces of tiny art, each piece ten by ten inches or smaller and made by artists all over the globe will be available for purchase.
The pieces in this show are my attempts to illustrate how enchanting it was to be in nature as a child, and how the symbols and archetypes I encountered in literature helped give form to the ideas and experiences I had to grapple with growing up. The title of this show, The Muddle, is actually a reference to one of my favourite novels, "A Room with a View" by E.M. Forster. The original excerpt reads, "there's nothing worse than a muddle in all the world. It is easy to face Death and Fate, and the things that sound so dreadful. It is on my muddles that I look back with horror - on the things that I might have avoided." Collectively, these works are an ode to "The Muddle", that terrifying realm we fall into in times of uncertainty, and where story becomes a tool for navigation.
