Life in miniature

Kinda creepy, kinda cool and completely draws you in. That's how I would describe sculptor Thomas Doyle's wonderfully intricate miniature worlds.     

"I'm interested at looking into this little world and telling a story," Doyle explains. "And making it in this tiny, miniature scene is sort of freezing that story -- something has just happened and something is about to happen and we are only getting that one slice in the middle."

The "what happened?" and "what's about to happen?" aspect of Doyle's work explores fear, uncertainty, secrets and darkness against the backdrop of idyllic American suburbia. Terrific material for a horror novel.
