About the work
Turner lives and works in Brooklyn. She earned an MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2017. Previously, she attended New York Studio School for Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture after having earned her BA from University of Vermont. Her paintings have been exhibited in New York, Chicago, Memphis, and California.
My paintings are based on my observational plant drawings as a entry point to abstraction. I integrate light, geometry, and emergent patterns on the canvas as I imagine how plants detect electromagnetic waves and respond to colors within the light spectrum. My work declares a reverence for botanical life — adaptive, responsive and resilient.
