For Terry Turrell, “Forever” is a personal journey honoring his late wife, life partner and inspiration, Loni. Throughout Turrell’s tenure as an artist, Loni was never far from his side. Her role was both muse and critic, and for Turrell she was a welcome buffer to the world outside the studio and home. The paintings and sculptures in this exhibition are sincere, and Turrell literally submerges the audience in imagery that pays tribute to his muse, and to the life they shared. Focusing on both 2- and 3- dimensional works, the textural compositions reveal the deep layers of grief which can be both healing and destructive, and the addition of found objects adds to the patina of Loni's lasting memory. The message this body of work conveys is the importance of a partner and muse on ones life and work, and reveals that for Terry Turrell that influence remains, “Forever”.
