Mark Powell, 20th Century




I just stumbled upon the miniature, anatomically-inspired dioramas of Melbourne based artist Mark Powell. His work really reminds me of anatomical waxworker Gaentano Guilio Zumbo's miniature waxwork fantasias on decay, death and disease (see Curious Expeditions for more on that.)

You can visit Powell's website here, and see more of his work on his Flickr page.

Good work !! Really.
It reminds me of Jerome Bosch plus Cronenberg plus Eraserhead plus a lot of things I don't remember right now...

Amazing & creepy!

I wonder if you know the work of Andy Paiko, glass sculptor? I think you'd love his spine jars.
