Lucy Salter

Inspired by the act of mapping, I collect and translate information into a visual form, codifying data to generate a ‘map’. Using repetitive blocks of colour to replace the letters of the alphabet I create abstract geometric patterns filled with narrative. Conceptually my ‘maps’ mirror contemporary landscape and portraiture by detailing facts, feelings and thoughts about a specific place or person. I investigate the connections between people and places, exploring their inter-relationship through line, scale, colour and contrast. Through the use of ephemeral materials such as photos, receipts and newspaper, I personalise each piece, building up layers of coded information. This therefore transforms written word and data into illegible abstract imagery with subtle but definitive meaning.
