“Based in the Caribbean & Latin American literary genre of magic realism, Palm weavings evokes the wonder of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. Alongside its vivid imagery, the stereotypical illusion of the tropics is deconstructed through the palm. Continuously masked and reframed, the weaving process also mimics the constant reconstruction of the Caribbean under the tourist gaze.”

– Aliyah N.C.
