Jonathan Parsons is an interdisciplinary artist who uses materials as diverse as steel, Perspex and maps. His fascination with cartography stems from a wider interest in our relationship with the outdoors. Lifeblood celebrates the Thames, and our efforts to chart it, by isolating the places and features that we have identified along its banks. Terminator Maquette and Mon Coeur reshape transport maps, drawing out their abstract potential. Parsons’ manipulations defy our expectations of how and where cartography can be used and appreciated.
