Playfully Contextual Dioramas
Matthew Palladino Uses Enamel and Plaster to Create Vivid Artwork

By: Gil Haddi (Superstar) Apr 16, 13

Creating dioramas out of enamel and plaster, artist Matthew Palladino expresses a playful side that explores the meaning of context and symbolism.

Smooth curves and a glossy enamel coating gives these sculptures a game-like plastic appearance, similar to sets of toys that can be popped out and assembled when played with. Repetitive imagery creates a pattern out of the chaos for viewers to interpret and find the surprising details hidden within. Palladino explains on his blog, that one of his pieces symbolizes his messy bedroom and the way it changes when he “used to wake up in the night and see crazy things in the dark.”

Memory, nostalgia and intuitive interpretation are experimented with in this collection of enamel and plaster carvings by Matthew Palladino.
