Lookout: Young artists named winners in NAA show

In 2004, she took the idea one step farther by adding miniature people to the scenes.

“My discovery of a German company that made miniature figures for model train and architect’s models led to the birth of ‘Lilliputian Landscapes,’” she wrote. “All of the images in this series are photographs of temporary tabletop dioramas that I construct with common objects found around my house. By placing tiny plastic figures in the setting and photographing it with a macro lens, the scene is transformed from an ordinary picture of food or household objects into a miniature world with a life of its own.”

The public will have a chance to see the show and meet with Robinson-Cox on Sunday during a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. The gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
