We stared at shimmering images rising off the desert floor. . .
We played a round of golf, hitting the balls as far as possible, despite the fact that we were hampered by the gusts of wind blowing against us across the rough terrain, our hearts beating rapidly from the exertion . . .
We caught sight of a plane passing overhead flying unsteadily in the blustery weather. . .
Later we rested along the riverbank watching the water churning around the rocks. . .
And while considering this, we gazed at the smoke rising lazily from our cigarettes. . .
Turbulence is a series of digital drawings that explores the unrest and commotion occurring in a mythic landscape. The drawings are maps of instability, images filled with swirling currents and amorphous shapes. They make use of techniques of intense looking and a vocabulary of personal marking developed over years of experience in the production of film, video, photography and digital media. The drawings represent process; marks and shapes emerging from darkness. There is no linear narrative, no conventional perspective or composition. These images investigate chaotic energies of a digital terrain.
