Shannon Rankin “Germinate”
Germinate (5000 Seeds) by Shannon Rankin is composed of tiny circular maps eleganty spiraling into one large circle. A write up from The Boston Phoenix:
“Shannon Rankin meticulously cuts and splices maps to play with language and form as related to nature and its processes. Her minimalist works on paper are both clever and beautiful in their delicate execution as well as their sensitivity to color relationships and geometry. She extracts the sculptural and topographical potential of the maps, folding and overlapping, to draw connections between natural and constructed systems.
Stunning art display entitled “germinate” by Shannon Rankin. The piece is comprised of small circular maps that spiral into a behemoth of a beautiful masterpiece of a circle. The display is kind of reminiscent of a color blind test, no?
