Isle of You
As an artist fascinated with mapping our cultural and technological landscape, I have become equally fascinated in how to map a life. Can a life be depicted through the contours, boundaries, landmarks, hazards and beauty spots that give it meaning? Can maps be biographies?
Isle of You is a portrait collaboration that maps where you are, where you came from, the places and people that have influenced you, the loved ones that give meaning to your existence, and the things you can’t live without. There’s even room for the those things you dislike since they shape us as much as the things we adore.
Upon purchase, you'll receive a document containing a set of questions about the key places, characters, episodes and inspirations in your or a loved one’s life that will form the basis of a unique portrait. Once we receive your answers, I'll use cartographic techniques to draw your very own Isle of You.
Unframed archival pigment print available in two sizes.
Production is limited to five maps per month so please order early to avoid disappointment.
Images shown here are examples of the style and aesthetic you can expect. The shape and content of each island portrait will be unique.
