Dioramas

The diorama is a presentation system scenario or staged an exhibition model (a historical character, fictional, animal…), making it appear in its usual environment.

(Wikipedia)

Inspired by this system I decided to create a series of three-dimensional representations.

What strikes me most often in the dioramas is this small scale model, as if we had a whole mini-auditorium for ourselves, as if we were Gulliver in an imaginary Lilliputian country.

My work of cutting wood and the theme of animals that comes back very often seems very close to the dioramas. Or perhaps the fact that the dioramas remind me of my work and fascinate me, pushes me currently to approach this system of pictorial presentation.
