Brooklyn NY

Piece description from the artist

Part of the "Cycling Series," this piece is part of a series that celebrates some of the country's most popular cycling routes. Illustrating (10) cities with strong cycling subcultures, this is a different take on the phrase "Map Your Ride." The series is done so that each piece has the real-life cycling routes drawn in to give an extra layer of meaning to the work and so that people can see their daily journeys. This piece shows the entire Brooklyn peninsula, south of the Manhattan Bridge.

About Jennifer Carland

Hendersonville, TN

Jennifer Carland is an artist who works with mixed media to create abstracted versions of aerial views and city maps. The work that she creates is loosely based on real geography and is abstracted so that the shapes, line, and color of the maps are altered to create a unique piece of artwork, showing an artistic representation of a real place.

Jennifer works with a variety of artistic materials and is fascinated by aerial views of the world around her. Each finished piece that she creates is of a map carefully selected for its geographical attributes and visual appeal then altered to create a unique piece of artwork. The finished product is a combination of hand-drawn and digitally altered images with many layers of colors and textures. The focus of her work is on interpreting the lines and shapes of a city map and changing the purpose of a map from utilitarian to conceptual. She intends to make the viewer think about their own place in relation to what is around them and appreciate the beauty in both the built and natural environments.
