DESCRIPTION
The San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries presents The Continental Interior, a site-specific installation by Val Britton. Drawing on the language of maps, Britton makes imaginary landscapes that depict physical and psychological spaces. For The Continental Interior, Britton expands the boundaries of her art practice in paper collage, painting, drawing and printmaking by breaking out of the two-dimensional into three-dimensional space, creating a large-scale installation made from hand cut, organic paper shapes that resemble landmasses.
