About the Artist

Francesca Berrini (Vancouver) received a 2005 GAP to help defray the costs of studio time, studio rental, and miscellaneous supplies related to her ongoing map project. Working on canvas, Berrini creates her work by tearing and rearranging maps to create fictional landscapes. “Any ‘current’ presentation of information about another place encapsulates the era and culture of the society at that time, thereby creating a guide to the people more so than any places on display,” says Berrini. Funds will help create a series of six unique, hand-bound atlases of her map works.
