The Drive-By series is a visual diary compiled over the last 15 years. Its inspiration has been cinematic and literary. The mystique of travelling the American West has an unequalled resonance for artists: Huckleberry Finn, On the Road, Fear and Loathing The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test; The Searchers, Two lane Blacktop, Easyrider and Electra Glide in Blue have all helped form a visual narrative that I’ve tried to capture; a feeling of exploring a foreign land. This is a short list that can be extended and extended. The landscape is built for cinemascope, wide vistas just crying out for a crop!
