After moving to San Antonio two years ago, Latvian native Natalia Sun became fascinated with Mexican culture and traditions, among them Dia de los Muertos, which was the inspiration behind her photographic work, “Mystical Brides.” The photograph is a celebration of the Mexican holiday with an unexpected mix of fashion through bridal couture and exquisite hairstyles, as well as an illustration of the three brides’ faces that Sun painted as "sugar skulls" as the haunting trio stands in the foreground of a mystical forest.

Known for his craftsmanship and use of primal materials such as wood and clay, Chadbourne's work is often likened to a body of cultural artifacts. The visual and ritual impact of these beautiful objects is made more complex by their provocative, poetic and often paradoxical titles. They are, in essence, monuments to irrational ideas and human impulses.
