look at these beautifully sinister snowglobe sculptures from pennsylvania-based artists walter martin & paloma muÃ±oz. each intimate diorama is crafted by hand with store-bought figurines placed in precarious positions (and frequently altered to suit the display), which clash wildly with the serene landscape backdrops made of sculpey clay. trees and other accessories within the pieces are made from plumber’s epoxy. once their imaginative scenes are assembled, walter and paloma assemble the globes and photograph them from varying dramatic angles, with remarkable results.
i get such an unsettling feeling when i look at these works, and the fact that i feel slightly panicked while observing a snowglobe is a true testament to walter and paloma’s precise and skillful techniques and vision. how about you?
