David Nuttall: Artimaps, Studio 308
My work includes hand-drawn fictitious maps on wood paper and board, pen and ink drawings, paintings with some sculpture, and photography. I am currently working on maps drawn on wood, using the grain of the wood as my contour lines (topology).
My intent is to create maps of places that are as realistic as possible, yet are from my imagination. These maps can take months to create and I have to try and be patient enough to draw what I have already seen as finished in my head. The places I create are real enough that I know what they look like and the uses of most of the buildings!
I can normally be found at the studio Friday evenings and Saturdays, but I share the space with my wife Jodi and she is normally there during our open hours.
