About

excerpted from A Botanist, An Architect, a Garden, an essay by Jennifer Rudder "Shifting the viewer’s focus from the earth to the skies, the third book, Cloud Atlas, includes images of the muscular structures of water and air, which unfold and open like a map to reveal the “turbulent power” and “vibrant materiality” of clouds with their “capacity to act as quasi-agents or forces.” Stewart has been taking photographs of clouds since 2004, many of which have found their way into her atlas. Here, clouds reflect the power of the weather system with its life and death possibilities, yet they remain neutral as they sail far above politically determined borders, the longitude and latitude of colonies, wars, and the ruin of climate change below. Viewing clouds through this long lens, Stewart sees a connection to Susan Stewart’s “The Map of the World Confused with Its Territory”, which she serendipitously stumbled across in 2018. The poem responds to the current disasters of war, borders, and refugees; thus, “the map of the world is an orphanage” with “fraying edges.” In the deep Prussian Blue of the towering images of clouds, the artist looks up from earth to a space of relief and possibility." Cloud Atlas is a collection of photographs of clouds taken over time by Penelope Stewart. Each photograph has been enlarged and printed onto diazo paper, the 20th century blueprint paper. This suite of prints is available as single prints unframed or framed in matching prussian blue wooden frames. This photograph is also included in an artist book titled Cloud Atlas which contains all 13 prints. the prints are editioned of 5 while the artist book exists as an edition of 3 unframed the prints are for sale at $750 framed in the matching prussian blue $1250 Cloud Atlas was created under the auspices of the Nick Novak Fellowship awarded by Open Studio 2017-2019
