Scale is being taken to new extremes in art: big and bold on the one hand, intricate and intimate on the other. This book is divided into two sections - big art and small art - and includes profiles of forty-five contemporary artists who are revolutionizing our approach to scale with works that provoke questions, arouse emotions and offer fresh perspectives, from beautifully carved leaves (Lorenzo Manuel Duran, Spain) and micro reproductions of artists at work in their studio (Joe Fig, USA) to giant mechanical kinetic sculptures (Theo Jansen, Netherlands) and immersive galaxies of shimmering spheres (Nike Savvas, Australia).
