The Miniaturists III
30 Oct 2019 - 23 Dec 2019
This November and December we present our third instalment of The Miniaturists. For this collection, we were inspired by the miniatures of Hilliaird & Oliver, which were exhibited in Elizabethan Treasures at the National Portrait Gallery earlier this year. As our first two editions were limited to three dimensional objects, we wanted to continue the theme but broaden the challenge to fine artists and include tapestry for the first time. The Miniaturists III presents artworks that are 7.5 cm square, two dimensional in format, with anomalies here and there. We are overwhelmed by our artists’ response; some have spent more time creating a miniature than a full size work or rather have regarded the miniature in exactly the same terms as a large scale work. We are, as ever, indebted to all the artists who responded to the brief with such enthusiasm and detail; for many, making a miniature has given birth to new ideas and directions.
The Miniaturists III features work from:
Jo Barker, Stephen Bowers, Philip Braham, Sara Brennan, John Brown, Hugh Buchanan, David Cass, Jonathan Christie, Rebecca Collins, David Cook, Stephanie Dees, Amy Dennis, Kate Downie, Matthew Draper, Philip Eglin, David Eustace, Joe Fan, Gus Fisher, Archie Forrest, Lachlan Goudie, Linda Green, Martin Greenland, Derrick Guild, Claire Harkess, Mark Hearld, Ian Howard, Jane Keith, Ed Kluz, Alex Knubley, Diana Leslie, Angie Lewin, Michael Lloyd, Kirsty Lorenz, Frances Macdonald, Christine McArthur, Calum McClure, Ewan McClure, Angus McFadyen, Jock McFadyen, Alison McGill, Barry McGlashan, Michael McVeigh, Hannah Mooney, Ross Ryan, Campbell Sandilands, Arran Semple, Naoko Shibuya, Charles Simpson, Emily Sutton, Natasha Todd and Geoff Uglow.
