Lesley Millar quote: “Creating miniature textile art is not …”

“‘Creating miniature textile art is not easy: it’s so difficult to avoid the cute, or looking like a sample’ says Millar. ‘The work must be entirely complete in itself, a work of art that is appropriate in size, expressive of a particular concept, which through its size gives access to what Ayelet Lindenstrauss Larsen has described as a primary way of interacting with the world: the way in which we look at a beautiful seashell or a convoluted piece of driftwood” (16)

  1. Small is often overlooked because it takes time to fully appreciate a tiny artwork. Big works are immediate and overwhelming, but a small, well-executed piece of art can fill your senses just as completely if you give it time.
