New York City.- P•P•O•W is pleased to announce “Night Falls”, its eighth exhibition featuring the collaborative work of Walter Martin & Paloma Muñoz, on view at the gallery through March 10th. Martin & Muñoz are an art team best known for their “Travelers” series of snow globes and photographs. In the world that they have developed, blizzard transformed landscapes often serve as backdrops for enigmatic narratives. These are in some instances angst-dream inspired. Others are hard times fables. There is a socio-political as well as a psychological aspect to these images and sculptures. As is often the case with this couple’s work, the narratives have an unfinished open ended quality. Concurrent with the exhibition at P.P.O.W the artists are participating in the exhibition “Fairytales, Monsters and the Genetic Imagination” at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, Tennessee.
