“I Wanna Drive You Through the Night" results from driving through the night across the Utah desert, lights out with the experience reflected on the windshield, body as machine, manoeuvring across the surface with methodical, rhythmical motion, mind disconnected from the activity, a robotic almost liminal state and yet grounded, all too aware of the now, the space is confined, a tension in the body as the only contact with the surface is through the tool, an extension of the hand, the painting and vehicle containers.
