Talk about feeling itty bitty. Artist Robert Therrien created this series of over-sized furniture that measure over 10 feet tall! Robert Therrien is know to recreate everyday objects true to their original material and color, but on an enlarged scale.
Robert explains his inspiration for this series:
“The artist’s point of view – from the small world – could be viewed as a large gesture- publically. The practice is creating something both large and small. Publically, Table and Chairs is perceived as a big object, where it actually originated from a small detail-a corner bracket supporting the table leg. Instead of crawling underneath and photographing an actual table in order to see it, why not shrink yourself and take a normal snapshot?”
This installation was on display as part of the Lifelike exhibition at The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
Therrien was born in Chicago in 1947; he now lives and works in Los Angeles.
