“Depicting leaps in our life from chaos to order, transitions started with observing the flow of chaos and order between zones of quietude and stressful, busy moments where big changes in our lives occurred.”
GROUND ART CAFFE 160 Strand street, Cape Town 8001 South Africa
A collaboration by Jürgen Dünhofen, Thurlo Adams & Adam Douglas
Moments of flux that accompany experiencing starkly different cultures, countless moves, acclimatizing to new environments and forming and nurturing new relationships – have been vital to the project Thurlo and Jürgen styles’ converse with each other as Adam‘s drone tracks mirror the fleeting emotions invoked in the drawings.
It’s been fascinating to watch the work develop, from a simple point of departure to a strong focus on portraiture emulating the theme. Adam Douglas is a musician, writer, photographer and educator living in Tokyo, Japan. He records under the names Kemek, Deeper Than Space and Dechirico, and previously collaborated with Jürgen Dünhofen on Drone Project 1.
