Artists Walter Martin & Paloma Muñoz create large-scale photomontages and 9-inch tall snow globes that reveal landscapes that harbor sinister secrets. Landscapes covered in darkness with a wintry blanket of snow set the stage for a narrative to unfold. The artists begin with the tiny figures that often inhabit the small worlds of snow globes and model trains. They are physically transformed to tell stories that have taken an odd and sinister turn. The scenes are vaguely evocative of a Hitchcock film or the dark comedy Fargo. They also hint at the fears that are encountered living in contemporary society.
