Concentric Narratives

My concentric narrative series features maps as a major medium. Each collage is a series of concentric circles, beginning with a perfect circle at the core and becoming more distorted as they move outward.

Map Collage Portraits

My figurative collages consist of portraits of family, friends and self or drawings of the model placed in whimsical settings. Maps offer endless possibilities in rendering the geography of the human body and the space it occupies. Mountains, oceans and roads become veins, tree branches, rug patterns and clothing, as I surgically manipulate them from one context to another. I find myself minimizing or beating back the most obvious map references to specific locations, but they have a way of bubbling up in ironic ways.
