Wallpaper commission (Marti)

About the Exhibition

In this site-specific installation for 21c Museum Hotel, Virgil Marti explores relationships between art and decoration. Using fluorescent ink and dyes on a landscape scene, the viewer is placed in an unfamiliar relationship to familiar objects. The recognizable landscape icons such as palm trees and Rocky Mountain waterfalls glow under a backlight. With the combination of natural and psychedelic nostalgia , the artist is perhaps commenting on the elaborate means we take to recreate the natural world in an unnatural environment.
