“Micro/Macro: Carvings and Photographs,” an exhibition of works by Dalton Ghetti, is on display in the Art X Gallery at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center through December 12.
In this exhibit, Ghetti, a carpenter by trade, exhibits his virtuosity with simple carving tools. Using razor blades, a sharpened needle and handheld drills and files, he creates microscopic and intricate carvings on the point of ordinary pencils. Many of the works take several months to finish and some have required more than a year of work from conception to completion.
The results are photographed with a large format camera and then dramatically enlarged. These large photos allow viewers to better examine the amazing detail of these tiny masterpieces and to appreciate the artist’s technical mastery and artistic vision.
The Stamford Museum & Nature Center is at 39 Scofieldtown Road. For information, 203-322-1646 or .
