Folded into 3-D mosaics.
The artist uses the pages of an old atlas to restructure the world. A map is basically a functional object, bearing geographic information, but by dissecting, folding and reconnecting the pages, the artist creates a multilayered artwork with an element of surprise. Names of cities, countries, rivers and mountains pop out at you, jostling with their unlikely neighbours. Maps have a special place in our minds because they give us a sense of location and provide us with routes into the unknown. These works of Cartography Art create a delightful reconfiguration of our sense of place.
In the tessellations that are composed of solid colours the sciography plays an important part in the artwork.
