David Gilliver’s Little People are feeling the full power of love, from young lovers to elderly soulmates.
Some are striking it lucky, as they embrace precariously balanced on a match, whilst others are keeping the spark alive and others are watching fireworks atop a champagne cork.
David said: "It’s all about love. Small world, big hearts.”
The artist from Glasgow has been inventing new scenarios for his small civilisations for over 15 years, since studying Fine Art Photography at the Glasgow School of Art.
He said: "Miniature figurines have always fascinated me and I take a lot of enjoyment from thinking up new ideas, and how to inject humour into any particular scenario.”
No stranger to using confectionary in his tiny scenes, Love Hearts sweets of course make an appropriate appearance in Gilliver’s new work.
He said: “I love coming up with new ideas for how the figures can interact with the objects they are being photographed alongside, and for some reason sweets have become a real personal favourite of mine.”
