Lauren Simone

Farm Utopia by Lauren Simone An exhibition of Lauren Simone’s art has been going on this month in Portland, Maine. Simone, a local artist, “creates maps from her imagination with ink, tea, and watercolors, marking her boundaries with thread. Her maps discover places you carry inside of you, such as the lungs and sacrum, or places you were unaware of, such as imaginary islands or continents.” Examples of her work can be seen on her blog and her Etsy store. Jamie Ribisi-Braley is a fan. At right, “Farm Utopia.”
