These Val Britton collages mimic the visual language seen in maps. The works are interactive and conceptual, featuring a multitude of varying geometries, line work and pops of color.

Color splashes and earthy shapes resemble topographies and dynamic lines take cues from mathematical diagrams. The artist's work aims to connect to his deceased father, referencing emotional and psychological themes. The experimental art works fuse structure with an organic flow. Britton connects paper fragments together through the process of drawing, painting, and collage. He uses experimental methods such as staining the canvas with ink washes, detailed stitching, cutouts, and printing.

This collage collection has a dreamy vibe with statement pieces that stand alone while connecting cohesively. The map-worthy art pieces are visually dynamic, distinctive and memorable.
