Topographies

 

Translated from the Greek, “topography” means “the writing of place.” We are accustomed to thinking of “topography” in terms of land features and forms. But a topography also addresses a more fundamental aspect of the human experience – Our relationship with the earth, with each other, an individual mood or state, or the innumerable layers of societal change. In this series, I explore topographies beyond the physical. Each work endeavors to examine an emotional topography, whereby color, shape, and negative space provide a template for who we are and how we feel.
