The Studio and Cheri Blackerby Gallery are pleased to present The Big Picture: A Group Exhibition About Size.

From the microscopic to the monumental, our understanding of size is intrinsically linked to human scale. Artists utilize scale to challenge and shift our perception of the world around us.

The Big Picture: A Group Exhibition About Size reflects the conceptual and physical reaches of size. When scale is used in art, it can greatly influence the meaning of the work. The size of an artwork will elicit different responses from the viewer, and reflect the varying purposes in which works of art are meant to serve.

Small artworks are often perceived as intimate, quiet, and domestic. Small-scale paintings challenge the long realist tradition of “painting as a window” and align themselves to everyday objects, like the printed page and the small, illuminated screen of a smart phone, tablet, or computer.

Large-scale paintings create a visual impact, a “wow” factor, and their billboard-sized, larger than life messages are often created for public spaces. Michelangelo's marble sculpture of David, standing sixteen feet tall and weighing six tons, could not convey the same superhuman heroicism if it were the size of a plastic action figure.
