The Elysian Fields were a place in Greek mythology where the souls of heroes and righteous people went to rest. In this land of eternal peace and happiness, the souls were absolved from all suffering. They had infinite time to stroll through the pale meadows, surrounded by music, poplars and asphodels. The last, a type of flower, came to symbolize death, grief, sadness, melancholy, sentimentality — and eternity.
In the words of English poet Alfred Lord Tennyson:
Others in Elysian valleys dwell,
Resting weary limbs at last on beds of asphodel
— Marcela Paniak

Today the Department of Miniature Marvels explores the work of Australian artist Kendal Murray, who uses every day objects as the foundation for creating playful miniature mixed-media sculptures. She builds tiny, vibrant scenes that take place inside and atop found objects such as makeup compacts, coin purses, bottles, jars, and teapots. The human figures that Murray uses in her pieces are so very wee that she uses tweezers to dip in the in glue before delicately placing them into the dreamlike narrative scenes.
The artist says, “The idea of creating these miniature works came from dream states and how we are able to play with our own identity, to play with different roles we take on in our dream state. So the miniature works serve as a metaphor for intuitive thoughts.”
Visit the Arthouse Gallery website to view more of Kendal Murray’s whimsical miniature scenes.
