Stan Klamer conceives drawing as a form of cartography. Islands, nautical charts, boats, the ocean -and the intersections of them all- are common motifs in his work. Maps, contrary to what it might seem, do not depict neutral spaces, if not constructed. They abstract the immense complexity of reality into a finite, two-dimensional space. In this sense, Klamer’s pictorial cartography is an opportunity for spatial contemplation, for reflecting upon the way artists document their own universes.
