The White Series

New Works by R.A.Turner

The White Series / Salmon Beach Retrospective

Feb 15th – March 15th 2018
Public Reception: Feb 15th 6:00-9:00

Like Commencement Bay on a still and misty morning the “White Series” captures the subtle beauty of the Pacific Northwest. These ethereal low relief paintings give the sense of a secret, barely obscured, to be revealed at any moment. Richard Turner has been greatly influenced by his experience at Salmon Beach and its intimate connection with nature. This experience has molded him into a uniquely creative individual, part explorer, part developer and part witness to the irresistible natural forces that surround us.

 

“For some time I have been acutely aware of urban noise. I even went to the Arizona desert searching for quiet. Much of the white series is my attempt at quiet. The Salmon Beach paintings are as a result of working up images for our annual rowboat race posters. I have had one shack or another at Salmon Beach for 56 years and the ever-changing land, sea, and sky compositions are part of me. This motif can be seen in both the realistic work & the White Series. It’s all about light, some inner, some outer.” – R.A.Turner

New Work by Scott Nelson

It’s a photographers’ job to capture a moment, but how exactly does one “capture” a moment? The act of plucking emotion from within the context of reality and distilling it into an artifact seems an impossible task, yet Scott accomplishes this and more in his new body of work titled “Here Now Forever”. These artworks are trophies distilled from explorations outside of the bonds of time. Some stretched like exotic animal skins; others composed to form their own visual language. Scott’s pieces offer us an omniscient view of existence, unfettered by the limiting perceptions of our physical being.

“I’m fascinated by time and humankind’s relative understanding of it. As an artist I like to step out of that seemingly one-way stream and to explore my own relationship with things considered temporary and permanent.” –Scott Nelson
