I manipulate maps using acrylic paint on map collages to explore geopolitical, socio-economic and environmental relationships between and within countries. I reinterpret maps to create the unexpected connections that emphasize these relationships.
Cities is an ongoing series of painted maps of American cities. Loosely based on the idea of a 75-mile radius map, these paintings reveal patterns of density and development as the diameter of the circles widen.
My Big Bang Series is an attempt to visually recreate a view of dynamic systems and the events they activate. These oil and canvas paintings incorporate a visual pattern based on a dividing cell and a reliance on a linear structure that continues in my paintings with maps.
