Diana Thorneycroft created several photographic series that explore cultural issues from the humourous to the political through painstakingly-constructed dioramas using famous landscape paintings as backdrops for action figures and other toys to provide a narrative that often belies the playfulness of the materials. This small-edition piece is part of a series titled ‘Canadians and Americans [best friends forever[struck out] - it’s complicated]’ Based in Winnipeg, Diana shows her ever-evolving work nationally and internationally, and has pieces in many museum collections.
