In this exhibition, Turk examines the costal region of Georgia, including St. Simons, from two distinct perspectives: 1) a recreational focus— in his Con/Text series he transfers text from local historical markers and plaques by making wax-oil rubbings onto either topographic maps or screenprints from vintage postcards of the area; and 2) a transit focus of Brunswick as a port— Choke II is a series of ceramic tablets featuring choke points (straits and isthmuses where geography and shipping lanes constrict). Exhibition media include clay, rubber, and works on paper.
