Jessica Rankin’s work might best be described as ‘mental maps’. Working on a sheer fabric called organdie, her images invoke cartography or geographic diagrams. Made from thousands of tiny embroidered stitches, Rankin delineates shapes, boundaries, and contours, interconnecting and locating them with miniscule text. In Hour To Hour, which incorporates 4 gossamer swatches, Rankin’s constellation appears to hover as gauzy illusion, with tiny green islands anchoring fixed location in ‘nowhere’. Labelled with poetic stream of consciousness text such as IHEARDTHEMBUTWASNOLONGERTHERE and COMPLETELYBYSURPP, Rankin’s map refutes tangible space to chart the mystical terrains of memory, the subconscious, fiction, and passing time.
