Tokyo’s ever-changing cityscape adds new, huge buildings all the time as the city heads toward 2020. These massive developments contrast curiously with the Japanese affection for miniatures. This exhibition brings together works that showcase the range of Thomas Doyle’s artistic practice, including both his miniature sculpture and his photographs of the tiny figures that populate his work. The title “Hold Your Fire” speaks to the works’ psychological content – the memories and thoughts we carry within us – as well as the palpable anxiety in between times of conflict. As the world copes with frequent wars, natural disasters, refugee crises, pollution, and protests, it often feels that we are living in an era of constant disaster. Doyle contrasts the anxiety these disasters evoke with work sculpted in small, intimate scales that communicate a timeless longing for the stability of home, hearth, and family.
