About the Exhibition:
To this rich history, I contribute my maps. Familiar imagery and architectural references encourage viewers to imaginatively inhabit the landscape. I hope to suggest that history, the production of space, and human experience influence the formation of individual and communal systems of belief, and thus responses to existence in general. These maps recall and invent such influences, re-evaluation the archaic notion of sublimity, and explore map-making beyond the physical world and into a more epic landscape of history, space, myth and scripture.
About the Artist
Sage received an MFA in Printmaking with a minor in Museum Studies from the University of New Mexico in 2009. There, both in collaboration with the Tamarind Institute and alone, she worked beyond the constraints of the traditional press bed size using multiple panels to create large-scale prints. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, and was recently awarded a solo exhibition at Woman Made Gallery in Chicago. Sage�s current work draws upon the history of cartographic rendering: mapping a metaphysical landscape in order to investigate constructed systems of belief, sublimity, and the distinct identities of spaces.
