Dominic Wilcox has created five new watch sculptures, tiny people standing on the hands of a watch, on subjects from protest and big brother (Captured, above) to money and football.

Love and Protest, "In these times of peaceful protest in the face of armed repression, a protester and soldier kiss."

The new Watch Sculptures are part of a larger series of miniature time-based sculptures by Wilcox that uses vintage mechanical timepieces and customized model figures.


UC Davis Protest, "I find it disturbing when people in positions of power abuse it and lose any sense of humanity. I was shocked to see the footage of the pepper spraying of people sitting in a peaceful protest at UC Davis. I felt a need to capture this incident in time."

By attaching tiny figures onto the second and minute hands of each watch, Wilcox has made unique, animated scenes from everyday observations and imagined situations.


The Beautiful Game, "A footballer holds aloft a trophy in the form of a pound symbol (£) as three prospective WAGs fight for his attention."

Love and Protest, UC Davis Protest and Captured are on display at La Scatola Gallery until the 10th of January, 2012. Comfortably Oblivious and The Beautiful Game are on display at Phillips de Pury until January 31, 2012.
