Memory landscape

An impressive collection of large-scale wall drawings & works on paper that represent mental maps, an investigation of the mind's peculiar ways of organizing memories. artist Janice Caswell attempts to trace the edges of recalled experience, plotting the movement of bodies & consciousness through time and space.

this work arises out of a desire to capture experience, an impulse to locate, arrange & secure the past. she uses a pared-down, coded language through which points, lines & fields of color define spaces & retell narratives, making memories concrete.
