Alan Turner’s new suite of large line drawings capture the emotive imagery found by a stream in Northwestern Connecticut. Based on a set of smaller drawings done on site, they each evoke a sense of timelessness and committed observation. Their simplified aesthetic sheds light on the essence of how the landscape functions and at the same time unveils deeper layers of relational complexities. Turner’s inherent understanding of movement and line brings the viewer in with all the rushing water up to the moment where the artist has decided to stop it. The work re-imagines the tradition of life drawing and meditates on the nature of mutability and sequence.
