Kim Rugg dismantles and reassembles things—mostly words and images, including newspaper articles, magazines, cereal boxes, stamp and now maps. “Rendering their original content meaningless,” Rugg teases out new and sometimes extraordinary meaning from the obvious and the provincial.  Maps are culturally relevant objects that have significant meaning, if only in that they are often ardently collected and stand to represent a specific place and time in history. Rugg masterfully transforms these iconic symbols according to a strangely altruistic and sublime methodology—like a gifted apothecary prescribing remedies for the end of the world. This show ends this weekend; a must see.~Eve Wood
