Maps of the Night: The Final Six

They have surrendered into this ocean

I am very excited to share the latest six works from my Maps of the Night series. These works are about me, my life and my current story but I hope you will find yourself within them as well. It has been an exciting time in the studio as I have worked on this twenty-piece series. The Maps of the Night were just the thing I needed to refuel after my Falling into Sound exhibition this past November that featured my white series paintings and the Manual for Living. The Maps of the Night are a continuation of the larger white series but at the same time a departure or expansion.

As I have mentioned before, these works are mixed media on paper and are 24x 36" with approximately a 1.5" border on all sides of the painting. The edges of the paintings are not kept pristine and one can see some of the process left behind in the inky stains and drips.

I believe in the power of original art and I am glad to offer these affordable, original works to collectors at just $100.00. If you are interested in a particular piece for your collection please email me at megancha@gmail.com with the name of the piece and I can send you a paypal invoice or information on how to make a payment or reserve the painting for pick up and payment through the Fayetteville Underground if you are local. I love shipping nationally and internationally, and these works can be safely shipped in a mailing tube to your location.

I have been happily overwhelmed by the response of collectors to this series, and there are currently only three remaining maps available for sale, with several of the works finding good homes in Canada, the U.K., as well as in the States.

Thank you again for your support and interest in the Maps of the Night. If you have any questions about these works, please don't hesitate to email and ask.

  2. There are so many more regions to chart. I think you have started out on something big with this series and I can't wait to see where you go next. This might be my favourite of your work so far.
