Black painter is inspired by the materials maps have traditionally been made of to create body prints using ink on fabric. the woman painter stitched topographical lines over the body prints to create a sort of map appearance out of the body prints, communicating a visual joining of the landscape and human body.
The map that forms the surface of these prints is very much like a map of a city, and its tenuous connection to the map of the city is not without a certain distance. I think that the artists intent is to capture the ambiguities of the world, and to present it in a way that is at once both naturalistic and mythological. His maps are certainly not strictly anatomical. In the end, however, these maps are not maps of the world, but rather maps of the body. But this is not to say that they are not useful, for they are not only maps, but also maps of bodies.
The maps function as both a map of the world and a map of the world as a body.The maps in the exhibition were made by surveying the area around the city and recording the way the world changes around it. The artist, with the help of a masonite wall, drew from these changes to create a series of maps for the streets of the city. These were printed in black ink and then retouched with a camera, allowing the image to form a new image. The work is based on a piece of found photographic paper with a drawing of the city, as well as a map of the city. The artist makes use of the maps as a kind of map book. The artist used the past to create a future that was both imagined and realized.
The artist also uses signs to imply the nature of the body, for example, by a reference to the arm, which is placed on top of the body, a sign of the body as a sign of corporeality.In these works, the body is a medium through which to create a landscape, and it is not the canvas that figures, but the body as a medium through which to create a landscape. The body is a vessel through which we can find our own maps of the world, and by means of its color, its images of the world, which are at once abstract and concrete, material and symbolic. The body is also a map, for it is a representation of the body, a map of bodies, a map of bodies as objects, a map of bodies as traces of the absence of a body, a map of bodies as traces of the absence of a history.
Black painter is inspired by the materials maps have traditionally been made of to create body prints using ink on fabric. the woman painter stitched topographical lines over the body prints to create a sort of map appearance out of the body prints, communicating a visual joining of the landscape and human body. The resulting images are often impressive, with their flat and clean surfaces and bright colors. The paintings are hung at a distance from the wall, and they seem to be made of thin wax, with the pieces themselves framed by the wax. They are also hung on the wall, with no gaps between them. The works are painted in the same way, but with the edges of the paintings removed. The work is marked with a single line that is either a mark of the canvas or a line of the paintings brush. The line of the paint is sometimes drawn from the canvas as if to indicate the edge of the work, sometimes from the edges as if to indicate the direction of the brush. This is a kind of line of abstraction, the line of abstraction of the body, and the line of the paintings brush. In a sense, the line of the paint is also the line of the paintbrush, and the lines, in turn, are the brushstroke and the brushstroke. The work of painting is thus a kind of line drawing, and the line of the paint is the line of the brush.The work of painting is thus an idea of the body, of the body as a body.

The works in this show are the first to be made by these two artists, and they are intended to be interpreted as a kind of diary, in which the two are linked by their friendship. They were inspired by a trip to Indonesia, where they were asked to photograph a girl who had committed suicide, and they found themselves in the midst of an unusual friendship. The series is based on the Indonesian girl and her family, but the artist is not attempting to document the suicides, although they are present in the photographs. Rather, they are used as a starting point for a series of sketches and notes, which they then proceed to modify and revise until the work becomes something much like their own. In this way, they become part of the work, but only to the extent that it is a work of art. The exhibition reveals that the artist and the photographer share a common interest in documenting, and thus of expressing, their friendship. The work of art does not become a tool for documenting, but a means of connecting with the body. The body is a structure that is seen as a material, a physical object, and the body is seen as a place of potential activity. The body, as a body, is a blank surface that we mark with an ink-on-paper line, a sketch of the body as an object, and as a body. This is where the drawings of the Indonesian girl come in: the drawings are the traces of the traces of the marks made on the body by the body, the traces of a mark made with ink on paper. They are the traces of the place where the body was located and where it will be in the future. The drawings of the Indonesian girl are also the traces of the body that will be there when the body is lost. The body, as a body, is a blank surface that we mark with an ink-on-paper line, a sketch of the body as a body.
