Map I has served as the point of departure for several of Stewart’s projects. The artist was interested in creating a mark-making technique that would avoid abstract gestural brushstrokes on the surface. Her materials (paste, molding medium, rubber and industrial materials) do not belong to the fine arts, but rather refer to pop culture and to the materials of urban poverty. For this exhibition, she decided to paint the entire wall in order to reference the billboard quality in her work.
