Mapping Efforts: Mixed media prints by Barbara Shapiro
20 x 20”
Shapiro’s subtle, earth-toned and richly layered mixed media prints use maps as a metaphor for recording life’s patterns and changes. Just as each hill, lake and ocean recorded on a map provides a snapshot of the ever evolving earth, humans are the sum of their experiences during their various stages in life. While maps chart the constant transformation of the outside world, Shapiro’s abstract and map-like images reflect on the shifting dynamics of the inside world.
