Art review: Exhibit relates landscapes to mapping

“Map-ify” is the name of an exhibit by James Bailey examining our relation to landscape in “the context of a map and mapping.”
The show by the University of Montana at Missoula art professor runs through July 6 at ArtSpace at Untitled, 1 NE 3.
Working in multiple printmaking techniques, Bailey “represents personal data through the lens of the artist,” using grids and maps.
Diagrammatic cones seem to float through and interact with various patterns, including wood grain, in his horizontally hung “Starting Point.”
The middle section of “Missoula Nocturne” looks like a black-and-white aerial view of a river, as well as city blocks and streets, at night.
A hand reaches down through white rain drops, while a black figure with an “X” appears to be “Waiting” for something, in another print.
A “Lone Tree” provides a focal point, and “Red Clouds” drip rain, like tears, in two more intriguing, horizontal, multiple prints by Bailey.
“Two Paths” cross, but one stops abruptly, as the other leads our eye across the black-and-white horizontal picture plane in a relief collage.
Even more complex is the imagery of “Spheres,” in which two Earth-like globes share space with interlocking white funnels and wood grain-like patterns.
Known nationally and internationally, the artist, originally from Minneapolis, has shown work and print portfolios in over 300 exhibits across 35 states.
His solo show is recommended during its run.
Open free to the public, hours are from 10 a.m.Read more on NewsOK.com
