'Each map is a place to rest your eyes on. You can contempate it as an abstract texture as a location or as a series of words. Unlike regular maps mine don't focuts on streets or buildings. Instead they build an organic texture of words that grow from the centre.'
The maps are screen-printed on archival printmaking paper. Texture deckle edge and vibrancy of colours convey an air of heriage while the character comes from slight inconsistencies in the ink levels.
