The most beautiful and captivating narratives can be depicted even on the smallest surfaces. That’s why, Haven gallery invited emerging, talented artists to showcase their best small scale artworks at the gallery space. Following Into the Woods, a remarkable exhibition of artworks which depicted deeply personal fairy tales, Haven gallery in Northport will present a collection of small scale artworks, measuring 8×10 inches and smaller. From seductive heroines, to industrial landscapes and animals devouring pizza, Little Big exhibition proves that even the greatest ideas can be portrayed on tiny canvases.

Little Big Portraits and Nature-inspired Imagery

Little Big exhibition will feature a variety of works by both national and international artists. Their works are as varied in themes as they are in styles, but human and animal portraits seem to be the most dominant motifs. New paintings by Sarah Joncas shine with sensuality and charm as the artist portrays inner life of women depicted in cartoon and film-noir atmosphere. Seattle-based mixed-media artist Kindra Nikole draws inspiration from the beauty of nature and the magic of portraiture. In her tiny 8×8 inches artwork, she uses acrylic to embellish the surreal female character surrounded by natural elements.

Foggy Industrial Landscapes by Brian Mashburn

Brian Mashburn skilfully combines his Asian heritage with Western style upbringing. His foggy oil on canvas paintings are inspired both by the heavy mists of Appalachia and the infamous smog of China and Hong Kong. In the upcoming Little Big exhibition, the American artist will display some of his trade mark industrial landscapes inhabited by a variety of meticulously portrayed animals. The juxtaposition between the cold industrial background and nature (and between life and death which they symbolize), equips Brian Mashburn’s paintings with an allegoric quality that people around the globe can easily relate to.
