Paradise Interference

A wall has been turned into a dark shadow of pattern tropical vegetation holding multiple digital prints and collages that are composed with a selection of images that represents the collective idea of paradise. Paradise being an environment and space of timeless harmony; and often used to market the Caribbean; in the opposite, I am challenging these ideas by creating overlapped compositions that offer alternative views, halfway views and narratives covered by a dense shadow of vegetation that challenge the audience to look beyond and make connections.
