Douglas Degges & Chelsea Werner-Jatzke

A collaboration between painter Douglas Degges and writer Chelsea Werner-Jatzke inspired by their separate lives in New York City. This is a collection of two maps of the New York City Subway system—one visual, one textual, both inspired by specific abstraction. Degges' collection of low relief carvings investigate how abstraction can render specific and autobiographical content anonymous, including five paintings created from Werner-Jatzke's photos and in conjunction with her writing which shifts between the personal and general, bringing details into view to challenge the memory, and the identity constructed, of them.
