Art treasures, treasured for life.
We are all both tiny, and epic. Lisa Swerling’s Glass Cathedrals are a series of hundreds of miniature worlds in boxes exploring this dichotomy. The dioramas express big ideas with tiny helpers – resilience in the face of overwhelming odds, domestic joys, the drive to create, lovers caught in an eternal embrace, family bonds. Each scene contains a sparkling parallel world, reflecting the poignancy, absurdity and beauty of our own.
