Mapes draws inspiration from everyday objects, using materials such as glass vials, insect pins, and dried grains to create his striking compositions. Each piece is a masterful blend of texture and detail, with no two pieces ever being exactly alike. This is a testament to Mapes’ creative vision and attention to detail, as he brings a special touch to each and every work he creates.
