Push Gallery is pleased to announce the latest exhibition of new work by local artist Lance Turner with an opening reception of Friday, September 5th, 2014 from 7-10p.m. at the gallery. The exhibition will run through October 10th.
Lance Turner's latest installation of portrait paintings and moving images intend to further refine our understanding of the mechanics of painting, infinity, and the situation of the viewer through a seemingly limitless amount of patterning, mirrors and Photo-realist painting. He has recreated the PUSH gallery through murals of abstract landscapes that contain psychedelic systems of teeth and eyeballs that draw on a wide range of influences from Rococo painting to skateboard graphics to process art. The gallery is filled with moving images and paintings that incorporate the viewer as subject matter. These are placed on top of murals to immerse the viewer into a total work of art conveying information overload and rapid transition as an exaggeration of our sense of the present.
Lance Turner is from Morganton, NC, and recently graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with an MFA in Painting. He has worked at the Asheville Art Museum and the Hickory Museum of Art. He has recently shown work at the National Ornamental Metals Museum in Memphis, TN; The Hickory Museum of Art in Hickory, NC; the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta, GA; and the Farmington Museum of Art in Farmington, NM. PUSH gallery is proud to present his latest work in this exciting new show. The event is free so come out and enjoy music, hors d'oeuvres, and beverages! Artist Reception Friday, September 5th from 7-10pm.
