This piece was made around the same time as Reconaissance. The title was inspired by the shape at the top resembling a map of Austrailia. I like that it refers to an obsolete idea too, continental drift was superseded by the concept of plate tectonics in explaining the movement of continents.

Traced map fragments and spilt and scraped paint intertwine on the canvas. Scrawled text winds its way around the composition. I like to juxtapose sparse and densely worked areas, like in River on light blue, I constantly want surfaces to breathe and allow the eye to venture; to explore work at the macro and microscopic level.
