Terry 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.
A self taught artist, Turrell’s work is distinguished not only by his highly textural surfaces, but by his remarkable range of subject matter and materials. Creating imagery that is most often figurative in nature, the artist favors both painting and sculpting equally, often working within the two mediums simultaneously.
