“There is something vaguely occult about these works; they suggest magical thinking in full flow. Yet they are also map-like, an oblique cartographic allegory of Downing’s own wanderings. One could say they are located where the mind meets matter – conceptual rubber hitting the recalcitrant road. Or that they are like archaeological findings from our post-industrial present, evidence of life in the anthropocene.“
