This exhibition is the result of my first year at TURPS, during which I have mostly worked on paper. I am also showing three-dimensional pieces developed during the Summer of 2021.

This body of work derived from an exploration of improvised drawing techniques that are rooted in meditation and immersion in the very process of making itself. I wanted to find the core elements of my practice and the parameters were that everything had to relate to everything else: change and flux, flux and transformation. In mapping improvisation, a seemingly random and organic process, I noticed that the outcome was similar to the processes one observes in the growth and sprawl of a city or in the formation of clouds in the sky. Is there then a visual order in what is apparent disorder? How far can we let instinct and intuition be the guiding forces before the intellect kicks in? - Joe Madeira, October 2021
