Heidi Whitman, Diploma '80 Mental Map (62)

23h x 30w x 0d

DESCRIPTION: Mixed Media, Unframed, Ink, gouache, acrylic, cut paper, on paper

ARTIST STATEMENT: The structure of the city and the structure of the mind are conflated in my paper constructions, paintings, and drawings. I'm interested in states of mind, how experience is translated into thought, how memories are layered, and how dreams jumble reality. Contemporary city grids and plans of ancient ruins are layered and edited along with references to mental networks. In my invented terrains shape and shadow interact invoking memory, presence, and absence.
