This is a mixed-media/collage map of downtown streets and bike routes from 2011. The map encompasses Loring Park (where I lived), downtown Minneapolis, and North East Minneapolis (where my painting studio was).
Originally I had planned to make the bike routes more prominent and intended the map to be more informational/literal, but as I worked on the painting it seemed to take on a life of its own and became more like a self portrait in the form of a map (if that makes any sense at all?).
I liked to describe it as a semi-giant work on paper…. because it seems especially giant if you live in a 350 sq ft studio apartment.
