Miniature dioramas in makeup compacts and coin purses by Kendal Murray


I like how artist Kendal Murray uses compact mirrors and coin purses as the foundation for building miniature dioramas. A jogger leading a herd of sheep across the grassy fields on top of a coin purse. A family outing at the beach inside an open makeup compact. Each piece tells a story which combines realism with the make-believe.

Murray told the ModernMet, “The idea of creating these miniature works came from dream states and how we are able to play with our own identity, to play with different roles we take on in our dream state. So the miniature works serve as a metaphor for intuitive thoughts.”
