Mary Jones

Mary Jones makes maps about the wilderness of social space. The raw materials come from rambling walks punctuated by stops to draw, write, and take photos. She chooses spaces to move through both familiar and strange. The resulting works layer physical geography with memories and random images that come to mind while walking. The maps are populated with personas combining what she has seen with what she has imagined about encounters with people, places, and things.
Details get piled on in the way that life is lived– in steps, notes, beats, breaths, and marks.
