I have been busy as an art instructor at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery. It has been a little while since I have had the chance to update this blog so here is a little treasure.
I came across Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz’s snow globes today. They kindly have offered the use of this image.
These miniatures draw me in. Yet again in my paper arts blog… a non-paper post.
The worlds Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz create are both playful and haunting. They often seem quite animated; an eerie contrast to the gentle flakes falling in the snow globe. A wardrobe hangs from the limbs of a tree, a man tips his head to a passing stranger, amidst the snow, a mother wearing an apron and summer dress calls to her child that has climbed too high… each one tells me a story.
