Walter Martin / Paloma Munoz: Travelers by Walter Martin

Book Description

Within the simple constraints of a glass globe, the captivating images in "Travelers" conjure up entire sequences of imaginary worlds and events. Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz collaboratively create mesmerizing miniature snowbound environments, then record them in chilly color photographs. At first glance the work is playful; on closer observation, it often reveals darker narratives: lone wanderers survey the frigid landscape, people and creatures exhibit unnatural tendencies, and ill-defined crimes are committed. Martin and Munoz create the figures either adapting ready-mades or shaping them out of clay, then paint and position them within the environments they also construct. The final compositions are then captured in photographs that are meticulously stitched and adjusted digitally for the final effect. Curator Dan Cameron has complimented the artists on their ability to juggle both visual and psychological charges. At the same time that they produce riddle-like parables about modern existence, they do not shirk the artists obligation to invent a new formulation of tactile and even sensual pleasure.
