CITY CELLS
CITY CELLS

BERLIN, 78 x 98cm, Acrylic on Canvas

This body of work is a collection of urban portraits, which explore the structure and symbolic nature of cities, as a vital part of everyday life. I play with maps, as informative and visual objects encompassing history, growth and perspective. Striping the map of street names leaves the only the grid and the cells within – each with its own story and identify. Together the cells form a living system, which invites the viewer to move beyond conventional ways of thinking about familiar urban landscapes. Each painting has its own character like a different puzzle. When the viewers figure out which city they are looking at then they start to talk about their own memories and stories each other.
