Marco Palmieri

Marco Palmieri

Pool Motif 1 (2015)

The water calmed him. He would float on its surface, with only his wet face breaking its humid skin. For as long as he could, he would stare at the sky, the azure surface, the statuary clouds, the oppressive sun. This is what nature was for the man: an unambiguous, distinct phenomenon, which would lazily rest in front of his playful gaze.

Palmieri’s wallpaper for Studio_Leigh presents a series of depicted images, floating effortlessly on the skin of a pool.  These ‘postcards’ float with calculated ease on an undulating background, creating a loose pattern which expands over the wall. Palmieri’s interest in wallpaper stems from the intimate relationship the material has with our daily lives. Wallpaper cascades into our livings rooms, our bathrooms, our bedrooms.  Unbound by the frames of a canvas, wallpaper becomes a sort of backdrop to our daily lives, silently decorating the stage of our personal lives.
