On modular art

One of the beauties of Jerry's Map is that it can be collected piecemeal. This art is modular. You can buy a panel now and add adjacent panels later to create a bigger work. As a matter of fact, you can send me a message requesting that I post certain panels on eBay. I will try to accomodate such requests whenever I can.

So, if you have bought a panel or see one that you like and would like to augment that area with contiguous panels, let me know!

The largest installation to date is that of a collector in Grand Rapids. In 2009 he bought 35 contiguous original panels for installation in his new office. Our next-door neighbors here in Cold Spring have a set of 20 prints on their dining room wall.

I suspect that a lot of Map fans think that the work is only meant to be viewed in its entirety. That will happen in the fall of 2012, but one day this Map will be too big to assemble in any reasonable space (if I live long enough!). My intention, however is that each panel be able to stand alone as a composition. Some, of course, are stronger than others. Such is fate!

Whether you want one panel, framed and hanging on your study wall, or a set of 40 prints papering the whole wall, tell me what you need! I'll do my best to give you what you want!
