Follies Burlesk

Alan Wolfson creates handmade miniature sculptures of urban environments. Complete with complex interior views and lighting effects. The pieces are usually not exact representations of existing locations, but rather a combination of details from many different locations along with much of the detail from the artist’s imagination. There are never people present, only things they have left behind; garbage, graffiti, or a tip on a diner table, all give the work a sense of motion and a storyline. Read more about the work of Alan Wolfson.
