EXHIBITION: August 1-31st Reception 13th 6-9p

William Turner's paintings are visually engaging with rich color and painterly quality which draws in the viewer. Visual references, such as an abstract landscape, figure, or shape, are merely a framework for his explorations into color and form. He starts his paintings with a chaotic under-painting. Thus begins his imaginative adventure to find direction out of the initial creative disorder and is a source of profound energy that ultimately resonates in the delightful collision between abstraction and representation. William paints to jazz, the rhythm and improvisational energy are key expressive elements in his paintings. Like chordal deconstruction resulting in structured, yet spontaneous improvisation, his paintings are rooted in shapes and figures that explode to the movement of the paint.
