DISorientals

From Michelle Grabner’s essay “The Sublime and The Center: Dimensions of Landscape”

Authoritative in their graphical information, it is impossible for the viewer’s imagination to comprehend the literalness of location. These [works] are both fiction and nonfiction, real and imaginary. Culled from Crown’s family’s kitchen carpet, these silvery pattern paintings are to scale. These topographical textiles are contact-printed directly onto stretched canvas, indexing their decorative contours and exposing an inexact and performative method of recording.
