It's Raining Macabre Snow Globe Art

In the past couple of weeks I came across two different artists working with snow globes. The first artist is a guy named Thomas Doyle whose work I saw at Mixed Greens gallery here in NY. The globe they had on display "Acceptable losses" was very beautiful and intruiging so I went to his website and looked at a lot more of his work there. Then on Wednesday evening I was at Aperture for a preview of their Fall 2008 Book list and lo and behold one of the books they are publishing is of photographs of dioramas of snow globes by a couple of artists named Walter Martin & Paloma Muñoz. These also interested me so I though I would post this all here and cool everybody off a little bit...
