Megan Scheminske’s Google map paintings are minimal and beautiful. It’s an interesting comment on our cultural necessity to know where we are. When I first learned about her work, I expected photo-realistic landscapes from satellite imagery but, instead was pleasantly surprised at her approach and juxtaposition to it’s subject matter. The strength of the work comes from the process she creates. The location, Google, juxtaposition of the work, and interface experience. As the body of work grows the better it will get.
