Lost or Found 2018

Artist statement: I used a map of London as the structure for this piece. Not only is the overall pattern the map, but the fabric pieces I painted are a smaller scale of the map. I was intrigued by the metaphor of the map in thinking about where am I in my life? Is there a map to help me when I am lost?

Quilt dress is 56" x 35".

The most unique rock art at the Gap is what is known as the “zipper glyph.” While the other rock art in the Gap isn’t necessarily one-of-a-kind, there is nothing like the zipper glyph seen anywhere else.

And it is a prime example of the differences in interpretation of the Gap petroglyphs. In the astroarchaeological perspective, the zipper is a map of the site, showing how the solstices and equinoxes align with it.

However, according to the Paiute Tribe, the glyph is about a man’s journey and a few other events, such as people starving.
