Eugenie Torgerson

In her Cartographer's Notes series, Eugenie Torgerson generates digital images which combine photographs of buildings, fires, fields, and the floor of the old school where she lives. This concrete surface is a map of sorts-- of floor tiles gone missing, spilled paint, children's footsteps, and the gravity of plain building materials. She prints these images on paper or transfer films and works into them with pastel and acrylic. Next the sewing: using Japanese paper cords and bookbinding threads, she translates the image into a fragment of a map, the lost lines of a letter, a broken yet true memory.

Into and over these marks and surfaces, she applies encaustic that builds up around and sometimes overcomes the images, the sewing, and the careful plan. Cartographer's Notes are destination, memory, work, and resolution brought to a stop and held for a moment. 

Eugenie received a B.A. with honors from Northwestern University and her work has been exhibited across the country. She was featured in the June 2006 issue of Southwest Art. Her work is in the collections of RDG Planning & Design, Westinghouse Corporation, Amoco Corporation and Arthur Andersen Company, among others. Eugenie resides in Niles, Michigan.
