Artistic Freedom

David DiMichele has become one of my new favorite artists I happen to stumble upon at the most unexpected times. You go looking for one thing, and discover something wonderful and entirely unrelated! This is an excerpt from his current current installation, a photographic series entitled Pseudodocumentation:
David DiMichele’s current body of work, Pseudo Documentation, is a series of large-scale photographs depicting grandiose installations in fantasy exhibition spaces. DiMichele creates this work by first building scale models of exhibition spaces, and producing original artworks in drawing, painting and sculpture mediums, which are sited in the spaces and then photographed to create the final works.

I love how exaggerated every piece is; I think that's what draws me in. I can imagine myself standing one of these pieces, absorbing its vastness. I like to be reminded that something is bigger than myself {which, on a sidenote, you'd think happens quite often considering I'm only 5'0!}; I find it quite humbling.
