Stefano Paltera / For The Times
Zaloom mixes high and low, resulting in a wildly disparate collection of the odd, the ironic and the grotesque. A 1980s businessman-angel made in Bali is backed by El Conquistador, a painting by Mark Dancey purchased at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. The nurse doll with a melted face was a gift from Betsey Potter, costume designer from Beakmans World. The doll melted when Betseys house in Hollywood burned down, Zaloom says. As soon as she saw the mutilated doll, she decided that I had to have it.
