"Human Candles"
by sabine7 / November 16, 2005


Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz have been collaborating since 1993 to produce some excellent examples of sassy sculpture for private collections as well as public art. The Human Candles are life-sized wax candles that produce a terribly eerie effect as they are burned and the humans hollow out, wax dripping instead of the customary sweat. Their shoe/feet combinations are just as off-putting, and indeed, a lot of their work presents unexpected anatomical reminders or intrusions. But it is their sense of humour that pushes forward the twists, and it is difficult to keep the corner's of one's mouth from rising up in appreciation.
