The AVENUEinsider always knew that Christopher Tennant was a talented writer and editor but we didn’t know he was also an amazing artist until we went to see his dioramas at Haus Interior at 250 Elizabeth Street (Nina Freudenberger‘s divine home store).

Titled “Aquatic Cases,” Tennant’s surreal pieces (a crab attacking a shark half it’s size) are both of the world beneath the sea and also totally out of this world. “I love his pieces from the moment I saw them as a reference to old Victorian shadowbox dioramas,” Freudenberger tells us. “With their surreal imagery showing the duality between life and death through the use of taxidermy.”

We couldn’t agree more.
