arthead sf

arthead sf blog was created to bring readers the meaning behind the art. These are not critiques or interviews with artists. Each feature is written entirely by the artist, revealing only what they feel and want readers to know about the featured piece. If you see a piece of art you'd like to know the meaning me.

Title: new topographic
mixed media on paper, 2007
My practice is invested in how maps can portray issues that effect the environment, particularly a changing landscape. In this piece, the United States is a dense and lush environment, a landscape that refers more to its past than present or future. I am interested in how one's landscape effects their life and the pending consequences of climate change. I create new scenarios that are not based on scientific data of the future of the earth’s formation, but they raise questions as to what is plausible.
