Peter Warner

Pete’s work explores the concept of hermetic worlds and the miniature, in association with themes of narrative, character, and collection.

A central focus has been the creation of models and artifacts surrounding the existence of tiny people, working with discovered manmade and natural objects to produce small creatures and their paraphernalia in diminutive majesty.

Propelling this is a fascination with the odd and the uncanny, with peculiar or ambiguous objects, and with the suspension of disbelief. Another primary influence has been art and tales concerning the folklore of various cultures, and their approaches to mythical creatures.
