I was thrilled to be invited by Jennifer at The Ponyclub Gallery in Portland to participate in their up-coming ‘Diorama Drama’ group show (click here to see the diorama I sent). Other participants include: Heiko Windisch, Lilly Piri, Julianna Swaney, Tripper Duncan, Annie Aube, Cate Anevski, Alisha Wessler, Lauren Albert, the Ponyclub members and more.

Wall-to-wall dioramas – sounds like fun! So, if you’re in Portland, Oregon tomorrow (Thurs 3rd June) at 6pm head over to the The Ponyclub Gallery for the opening.

While we’re on the subject of dioramas, albeit on quite a different scale, here are some from the North American Mammals room at the American Museum of Natural History. These ‘habitat dioramas’ are beautiful, compelling and disturbing all at once – they were certainly one of the many visual highlights of my recent visit to New York (and I’m now itching to get my hands on this fascinating looking book).
