Summer exhibition at Laurence Miller Gallery features small works by gallery artists and other greats
New York City Subway, by Kazuo Sumida.
NEW YORK, NY.- Laurence Miller Gallery presents Small Things Considered, the gallery's summer exhibition featuring small works by gallery artists and other greats.

The art of our age seems to be ever-growing. Tasked with filling mega galleries, art fairs, and blockbuster museum shows, the global art market has fostered ever-larger creations. Epic scale and spectacle have become the default mode of the day. Small Things Considered has been conceived in conscious opposition to this trend.

In assembling a show focusing exclusively on small-scale work, we have sought to highlight what is neglected when only the grandiose is considered. These works elevate a kind of expression that cannot be achieved when we only exhibit the sensational. The pieces gathered here embrace sensitivity, impermanence, delicacy, and modesty as some of the most affecting kinds of experience.

With over 50 works by 30 different artists, a wide array of approaches to the small gesture is on view. From 1949, we have Harry Callahan portraying his wife Eleanor as if from a great distance, her figure dwarfed by a black void around her. Ray Metzker’s photograph of children on a beach from two decades later is like a negative of Callahan’s image, the figures rendered as silhouettes dancing across the ocean’s horizon. From Kazuo Sumida’s fleeting moments on the subway to Dominic Episcipo’s profile of Elvis carved out of raw beef, it is a diverse group of pictures that, whether through tenderness or wit, share a common sense of intimacy.

This summer the gallery invites you to revisit not just a scale of picture, but a kind of looking.
