3 - Tangled Mapping
The Tangled Mapping paintings are complex but contemplative, chaotic but orderly, light and airy though layered. The images bring to mind aerial, city or transit maps. They can also be seen as tangled thoughts, the brain's mysterious circuitry, or the skeleton/internal forms of some forgotten species. The process is intuitive and thoughtful, combining a zen approach with a studied sense of composition and color. They can be calming or exciting, depending on the projection of the viewer.
