In The Make: Collages on paper by artist Val Britton

Posted by liveBooks

Val Britton makes large collaged works on paper that draw on the language of maps. She began making this body of work as a way to connect with her father, a truck driver who drove eighteen-wheelers across the country; he died when she was a teenager. Based on road maps of the United States, routes her father often traveled, and an invented conglomeration, mutation, and fragmentation of those passageways, her works on paper are abstractions of loss and longing.
