Shifting Surfaces: Parts I, II, & III by Jimmy Turrell brings together a series of works which over the course of six months will transform and reconfigure in three separate stages, using various techniques – hand collage, overprinting and painting being the primary methods. The work ranges in subject matter from collages of some of Turrell’s musical heroes to a combination of language, slogans and found material.

“I want to create an organic shift in perspective in each of the three stages and by using the juxtaposition of type and image I want to reconstruct the meaning of each piece. The wholesale redaction and sometimes destruction of some of these pieces is necessary for the next stage to exist.”

Turrell has also included collaborations in Stage I with artists Braulio Amado, Anthony Burrell, Richard Turley, and Jake Hollings, which again will be deconstructed and reconfigured over the course of six months.
