Martinique

Some Renderings/2015

As a reminder, Martinique is an island in the Eastern Caribbean Sea. It is also held in the colonial imagination as a place of untethered, excessive natural beauty. In the 1950’s a wallpaper named Martinique was made popular in House and Beauty magazine. It filled upper middle-class bedrooms and hallways, providing fake escape through a jungle filled myth.

This wallpaper became the material for a catch-all exercise of rendering. It is a messy, proto post-digital mix of the corner problem with a hint of post-colonial cynicism.
