Suspended in time and space, Thomas Doyle’s miniature artworks [5] are about dreams, memories and awkward sensations. Often sealed within a glass bell or bubble, they portray homes that have gone through some kind of natural disaster. Within the catastrophic [6] landscapes, small human figures can be seen dealing with the situation, leaving with a few belongings, or approaching the dramatic scene.

Distorted and blurry, these moments in time are wrapped in a dreamlike atmosphere – as if they were mimicking how we remember things from the past. Evoking feelings of anguish, distress and sometimes peace, Doyle’s miniature worlds are on the edge.  Doyle’s work unveils the strange beauty within catastrophic moments and captures a single fragile moment in human life.
