Artist Statement more stolen geometry from the gardens of love
Maps are often very beautiful. A combination of the cartographer’s art and military conquest reveals a pattern of fragments put together to create a whole much like a mosaic or a quilt. The result provides an indication of not only where one might go but also where one is not welcome.
Working with map fragments and the geometric patterns used across cultures to decorate and claim home and places of worship these works explore ideas of diaspora, displacement and the search for refuge.
