Mind Map

Prisma Marker on Pastel Paper
November 2016
When asked to reflect upon my artistic influences, I found myself looking to personal experiences rather than historical artistic figures as the drivers of my work. Mind Map can be thought of as a both an embodiment of the paths I have taken in life and the branches of thought that have emerged from those events. Although the larger shapes represent events that were influential in the time the piece was created, the piece implies that these shapes shift as some branches settle to the bottom and others rise to the surface to become prominent components of the composition.
