The elements of this landscape brought to mind artist Randy Twaddle’s breathtaking Distribution Drawings. I heard him talk not long ago about making these large-scale drawings, which synthesize photographic printing techniques with a chancy hand-held “drawing-with-liquid” — coffee, as it turns out — where marks are made using gravity (and the paper’s native characteristics of absorption), rather than brush or pencil. The results are beautiful and intriguing.

‘New Drawings’ by Randy Twaddle is on view at the Holly Johnson Gallery in Dallas, Texas through March 16, 2013.
