Mapping Our Emotions

Artist Ed Fairburn creates arresting portraits out of the hodge-podge of streets, roads, railways, topographical features and waterways on ordinary maps. His meticulously worked pencil and ink drawing are hauntingly emotional. Fairburn says, ” The work that I produce is largely figurative, and through the exploration of the human form I examine the patterns and structure that exist across the body”.
