Ed Fairburn has updated his portrolio with a few new pieces. He began his Maps series, using ink and pencil to illustrate portraits on maps, utilizing the patterned and multicolored surfaces as "an eye-catching attribute" to "echo the complex textures found in the human form." He recently released a new work where he also cut and layered the map! The piece was created from a reproduced military map of France and framed them in a way "to show a physical depth between each layer."
