In the art world, big is usually better. Willard Wigan, however, is going against the grain with his micro-sculptures. His exhibition at the Parish Gallery in Georgetown, Art in the Eye of a Needle, does exactly what it says, displaying shockingly detailed sculptures smaller than little peas.
Wigan uses microscopes, bright lights, and pinpointed tools to create this little masterpieces, working only at night to avoid the vibrations of traffic. He started making micro-sculptures when he was a child. "I started to believe ants needed a place to live," he said. Check out more of Wigan's works HERE.
