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.
