Maps and the act of mapping have been the underlying influence of most of my work for over fifteen years now. Although the history of mapmaking is endlessly intriguing, it is the intersecting lines of the map itself that continue to fascinate me.
My work traces them, sometimes on a flat surface, sometimes over textured areas mimicking a low relief map. I love both the organic, meandering lines of nature, as well as the rigid geometric grids we often impose on the land. Although my work is abstract, it is securely grounded in the heritage of the world’s maps.
CMaps unleash our curiosity and wonder. They are a visual reference for where we are, where we’ve been, and where we might want to go. I celebrate maps and their history, for it is a celebration of our own history.
