Virginia Plate, Minnesota – 2018
- Image Size: 9in x 11in
A striking artwork by artist Ed Fairburn, as part of our IN:SIGHT 2018.
Ed reimagines maps, blueprints and star charts as canvases for his detailed portraits.
Breathing life into the organic patterns, he transforms the topography into recognisable features using ink, watercolours and pencil. The humanisation of this everyday item connects viewers to the location.
Ed says: “I let the map do what it wants to do, teasing out the human form. The female form is beautiful just as it is.”
