Slip Road is an exhibiton comprised of a collection of paintings, drawings and photographs produced over the last year – all with a strong visual link – all reflecting the artist’s fascination with power lines and other attributes of American built landscape.

The new body of work is comprised of 2 groupings:

In the first group of works, dilapidated landscapes explode into an abstract mixture of views and fragmentary parts. The visual representation of a utopian urge draws the viewer into an ethereal imaginary world constructed from a composite of different views and transformed into intricate symmetrical patterns along a single axis.

The second group of works depicts a dystopian landscape of endless roads, cars and power lines. In this surge and jumble of images, the viewer discovers the dramas inherent in nature while also being reminded of a car-centered perspective from which we tend to experience the landscape.
