Ted Milligan - Mental Maps

12th St S & Army Navy Dr
Arlington, VA 22202



Drawing from his geography background, Ted Milligan calls this body of work “Mental Maps.” According to Milligan, people form mental maps based on our experiences - from life altering events to the mundane moments in time. Individual mental maps are constantly redrawn helping to organize, relate, make meaning and learn from the experiences of life. Milligan uses painting to continue his own process of mental mapping. Stored within each of his pieces are memories, feelings and ideas expressed through intricate pattern and layers of vibrant color.
