Infrastructure Development: 101

Infrastructure Development: 101 is a series of twelve paintings that use highways and various other elements extracted from common road maps. Collectively they began as a process for testing the methods to be used in the larger scale Infrastructure Development series. 

 

The collective pieces represent every person with whom I’ve had a romantic connection with at some point in my life. This method of working stems back many years through different creations that variously used sticks and light-cone diagrams to metaphorically illustrate the paths of characters and events through space and time. Infrastructure Development 101 also adds to the string of autobiographical projects I have done as part of entertaining a compulsion to simultaneously express intimate feelings in a candid way while dualistically being able to take safe refuge behind chronological distance and the abstraction of symbolism.

 

All works are mixed media on wood panel from 2008.
