Concept

I’ve been interested in maps for many years—how they define borders for countries, counties, cities and towns. But what if there weren’t any borders? What land belongs to whom and where? Would there be order or just chaos? These questions arise for me when making this painting. The painting has more than forty encaustic layers which are built up then scraped away to create the texture and luminous quality of the surface.
