lauren, lady of the maps' Profile
As a child there are some things that have stuck with me through to adulthood: maps, sewing, and thinking about color.
I remove maps from their original contexts to reinvent them, creating aerial landscapes with
wax, ink, watercolor and tea.
Often times, my maps are made through
free association. I follow contour lines left behind by the ink, creating valleys and mountain ranges as if I were discovering them. Sometimes I use thread, sometimes wax.
Other times I use antique maps as an inspiration, rediscovering places that were then, newly explored.
You might not find your hometown in these drawings and paintings, but you will recognize somewhere you've never been…
