Everywhere I Want to Go, collage, colored pencil, 60" x 44"
In this series I explore the specific mapping and travels of my daily life during a period of time when my a partner who lived some distance from me became critically ill. My travels were restricted to my home, her home, and work. I found a great freedom in poring over maps and atlases during this time, dissecting and configuring both my actual and imagined travels. Concern for her health wove it's way into my work and the pathways and structures I developed in these pieces end up reflecting clusters of cells and the structure of veins, both attached and disembodied.
