Double Sea, Mette Tommerup

SLS Cancún Hotel & Residences, Mexico

One day, Denmark-born, Miami-residing artist Mette Tommerup decided to throw some of her paintings into the sea. They came back with salt damage; some even grew crystals. This is how Tommerup happened upon the method she used for the creation of Double Sea (2020), on view at the SLS in Cancún. An installation of wall-sized canvases portrays rippling, fractal patterns like those you’d find in the Atlantic, though the artist also sees these as the workings of our minds.
