Virgil Marti bridges art and domestic decoration in his immersive environments of color, light and texture. His upcoming exhibition at Richmond’s Visual Arts Center will feature a new wallpaper design, a fanciful chandelier, and richly upholstered seating among other components, Marti’s installations evoke opulent interiors while also addressing the centuries-old theme of vanitas, or life’s transience. Virgil Marti’s extensive exhibition record includes solo exhibits “The Flowers of Romance” at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, and The Santa Monica Museum  of Art.  Group exhibitions include Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney and the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
