“Light Atlas” developed from Cynthia Daignault’s realization that she could name 100 men who roamed the country to create canonical works that are used to define America, yet struggled to name one such work by a woman. In 2014, Daignault embarked on a yearlong exploration of America. Traveling around the U.S. perimeter, she stopped every 25 miles to paint the view before her. Consisting of 360 paintings — one for each degree of the circle she traveled — “Light Atlas” forms a grand portrait of America, an exploration of light and color, typography and typology, industry and economy, myth and reality.
