"Mappamondo" by Meredith Dean
artist: MEREDITH DEAN
11" x 21” Relief print on rag paper, frame 22" x 31"
“For many years my work has been inspired by my interest in both mapping (topographical, land, road, sky, magnetic flow patterns, earthquake fault lines, wind directions, cartographic projections, etc.) and the effects of natural forces (wind, weather, water, time, internal pressures, seasonal changes, etc.). The whole idea of attempting to capture the world as fixed with maps and data is confronted by the reality of constant natural changes. These opposing yet mutually dependent ideas influence the imagery that I use and the way that I think about creating my art.
I work in several media, printmaking, epoxy constructions, drawing and photography. I use shifts of forms and color to create a personal, investigative system to express the inter-changeable, constantly shifting poetic, visual signs, and symbols with which we attempt to describe our world.”
