Barcelona-based illustrator Mar Cerdà creates small, charming dioramas out of cut paper. Her practice revolves around watercolor paint, and she uses its sturdy paper to form her sculptures. Afterwards, she photographs her handiwork. When viewed just right, the scenes are reminiscent of film stills.
There’s a good reason that these dioramas remind me of movies—Mar’s training is in cinema with a specialization in art direction. This background encouraged a fascination with the treatment of space. “I firmly believe that a character can be defined by a space,” she writes, “even if is not present at all.” I agree!
