Artist statement: "I create three-dimensional art from used maps, which themselves are a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional world. When I select maps to use I’m driven almost entirely by the aesthetics of the colors and shapes within them. I ‘excavate’ the maps – hand cutting away specific areas, which then heightens the focus on others. With spaces between the roads of a map removed the viewer is able to peer deep into the mass of tangled layers of streets, perhaps a symbol of the messiness of interconnected lives. There is both a sense of loss, of the absence of what has been removed, and a sense of resilience and endurance, as the roads remain intact within the fragile structure of the now lace-like pages."
