The Houston artist presents drawings inspired by the city’s power lines and electrical transformers, which Twaddle compares to “some trippy score that’s been drawn in the air by an anonymous composer.” Instead of charcoal, Twaddle’s longtime medium, the artist’s new drawings are in black ink and coffee.
