i truly enjoy map-related art, and this terrific topographical textile work from madison artist leah evans does not disappoint. leah says her pieces, which are constructed using applique and embroidery techniques among others, reflect the intimate expression of the language of maps as well as nonspecific, imagined landscapes. they are mysterious and intriguing and engage your eye for a good long while. also intriguing is the fact that leah’s interest in microbial worlds drew her to conclude that the satellite imagery and aerial photographs her map series is founded on look very similar to the bantam (and magnified) microbes, when scrutinized side by side.
