Jody Arthur

Jody Arthur is a book artist, printmaker and writer. She was born in American Samoa and currently resides in Hawaii. Her transitory life inspires her work, which is concerned with travel and migratory patterns. She has created installation pieces and artist's books that explore historical and personal migrations in the South Pacific. Other projects include playful pieces that parody reference and informational materials, such as guidebooks and safety brochures. 

City Walk I

The map of the places I walk in the city becomes routine, like a ritual: a method of procedure that is followed without variation. I walk from home to work and back again, to the grocery store, to the library, a series of routes that is practiced over and over. In City Walk I and II, the idea of the city map has become so abstracted it no longer functions as a working map. The abstract lines were hand-painted using hand-cut stencils.
