For Map of the Inner War, Ed Templeton saturates the walls with over 250 new works including painting, sculpture, photography, and works on paper. Templeton documents his life, and the lives of the people around him, in a rich stream of images - images of himself and his wife, Deanna, in their day-to-day lives, and images of others, at home in Orange County, California or during the many tours he makes as pro-skateboarder and artist. Templeton likes to present his photos, drawings and paintings in a non-hierarchical manner, large quantities all mixed up together at once. He’ll often hang clusters of works in the shape of “image clouds.” In these installations, the to and fro of the clouds feels like a metaphor for the appearance and disappearance of images, like those of a traveler acquiring countless new impressions every day. In Templeton’s way of seeing we also recognize something of the fascination of the passer-by, the transient, gripped, at some unexpected moment, by the “extraordinary of the ordinary,” the exceptional and surprising existential qualities of daily life.
