Postcards for Ants Miniature Art and Photography by Lorraine Loots

One of the most challenging projects an artist can do is to create something following a theme for 365 days.  Cape Town based artist, Lorraine Loots, began her unique challenge of painting tiny pictures for every single day of 2013.  She said, “The project evolved and people started booking sentimental dates making suggestions for the painting to be done on that day. Every day, I posted the completed picture online, and unsold pieces could be reserved by commenting on the picture.”

Those paintings were exhibited in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa in January 2014 before going to their owners. She decided to continue with the project in 2014. But this time the paintings will be Cape Town themed. That is because the city was designated as World Design Capital this year.  This time round, additional postcards will also be available for sale besides the original paintings.

Her collection is aptly named, “Postcards for Ants”.  They are all tiny as you can see from this selection of photographs from the artist’s Instagram. The macro images show different objects such as brushes, palettes, pencils, coins, ear buds and even the artist’s fingers artfully arranged to demonstrate scale.  They are all exquisite!
