This work walks the boundary between confrontation and concord
across multiple themes: two and three dimensions, rural and urban,
line and shape, natural and industrial, wearable jewelry and art.
Using map imagery to explore the contrasts and correspondences of
these themes, delicate silver forms containing miniature map
drawings layered in resin are created. These painted layers are
colorful gems, with masses of line and shape that harken back to the
topographic and road maps they were derived from.
Like maps, inspiration is drawn from crystalline structures and
their ability to preserve what is in and reflect what is around
them. The maps we use today relate by preserving the history of the
places they record while reflecting the maker=B4s intention and the
user=B4s need. Like jewelry, maps are intimately entwined with their
maker and user.
