Jamie Martinez
VR Unity: Global Warming, 2019, Painting Oil on Cotton

2019

$2,100

About

This painting is a direct response to the intensifying threat of climate change. An empty hot dog truck, a Chimera, a pyramid, flying parachutes, an isolated ladder, and mountains submerged by flood waters are among the elements that make up the surreal composition. Martinez’s process involves using Virtual Reality software to construct a collage of visual fragments. He then translates the VR simulation into an oil painting in order to document this new dream-like dimension that was created in the virtual world. Although a human figure is not visible in the painting, the cataclysmic scene suggests that anthropocentric activities on earth contribute to accelerated global temperature and rising sea levels, which will eventually lead to mass extinction. Actions to correct these problems must be massive and collective.
