I adore these tiny sculptures by artist Diem Chau. Created out of crayons, each piece pays homage in such a beautiful way to her family and culture.
I found out about Diem through a friend of mine, Jess Van Nostrand, who curates contemporary shows in Seattle, and curated a show of Diem's work. I was immediately drawn to the quality of these tiny carvings when I got the announcement postcard in the mail.
There is something really wonderful, ans sweetly eerie about this work. It has a lot to do with the medium of crayons mixing with the careful craftsmanship, also the almost religious quality that the postures of each figure has. Enjoy!
