An exhibition tucked away in the back room of Pierogi, on view from October 13th — November 18th, 2018, that filled my heart with joy.
“McKearn develops narrative subjects using models, dioramas, and miniatures. Some of his narratives are inspired by mythology and others by personal experience. Most of the pieces employ a cast of figures in tableaux set against fragments of landscape or architecture.” - Pierogi Press Release
William McKearn certainly has a knack for creating fantastical worlds through his small sculptures.
In his words - “In 1984 I moved from Minneapolis to Brooklyn to work as an illustrator doing spot stuff in magazines and newspapers. I slipped into carpentry when illustration failed to pay the bills.”
Well...everything happens for a reason, and this one seem to have paid off, because his sculptures are beautiful.
