From here, Davis's work leaves the two-dimensionality of maps behind while continuing to be inspired by the concept of mapping. When I visited, a work in progress (eventually to be suspended) contained blue jigsaw puzzle pieces caught in a net of spiraling wire like a fishing net catching water. Loops and color-coded symbolism continues. During the run of the show, Davis will create another work combining weaving, sculpture, and paper. A demanding commitment of time and energy in and of itself, Davis has added an edge of vulnerability by transferring large parts of her studio to the gallery, sharing what is usually an intimate, solitary situation.

"CYNTHIA DAVIS: STANDING NAVIGATION ON THE END OF A NEEDLE" | through March 16 | at the Coleman Burke Gallery Brunswick, 14 Maine St, Brunswick | 207. 691.3854 |
