As we orient ourselves to space, our perceptions are easily distorted by point of view, time, and memory. The Aspen Map series is based on trail maps in Aspen that are abstracted, layered, and rotated to reveal new forms and patterns. Derived from an angled overhead perspective of the trail map of ski runs at Aspen Snowmass, Crown uses a blend of digital and analog techniques to overlay viewpoints while flattening perspective. Over a period of weeks and months, the surfaces accrue layer after layer of delicately calibrated brushwork. Her painting process emulates the numinous surface of fresh snow. Sinuous marks evoke an imagined journey down the mountain and explore how our senses can orient us in space.
