Description This print shows the Cape Cod, Massachusetts area, including the lands and sea from north of Boston to the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, in hues of soothing blues and greens. By applying a palette of color to the digital models that depict land and sea elevations, the artist has captured the intricate relationships between the landforms and sea bottom of this popular destination.
Paul Hein, Saratoga Springs, New York Member Since December 2012 Artist Statement A cartographer by trade, Paul Hein has devoted over 30 years to creating maps and images that display a visual clarity and effectiveness of design.
The images seen in the Topographics Gallery are actual digital elevation models of existing topography. In other words, they are maps of the earth's terrain, but without any of the place names, roads, boundary lines, etc. that are normally associated with a traditional map. Paul has used these elevation models to create abstract works of art while maintaining the geographic integrity of the data.
In contrast to the Topographics Gallery, Paul has recently begun adding prints to his Planimetrics and Traditional Galleries. Planimetrics are 2-dimensional images where actual map data has been transformed into colorful lines and shapes. Traditional images are just that - traditional styled maps with place names, roads, and boundaries.
