About the Video
Turrell is an artist of delicate hand using unconventional, often recycled materials to create a beautiful edginess indicative of his Northwest roots. Drawn to art his entire life, Turrell’s innate ability to transform the ordinary or overlooked is as unique as his style. Working intuitively, Turrell creates work that is both innocent and confrontational. His work can easily be defined as the perfect imperfect.
As a self taught artist, Turrell’s work is distinguished by a remarkable range of subject matter and materials.
He utilizes found materials for both sculpting and painting. The artwork is most often figurative in nature.
It is textural with heavily worked surfaces. He favors both painting and sculpting equally and works with the two mediums simultaneously.His work has been shown extensively throughout the United States since 1989 and most recently in Europe.
