Daniel Turner


b. 1983, Portsmouth, VA, USA

Lives and works in Brooklyn

Daniel Turner’s work stems from painting, yet does not resemble it. His conceptual work questions the spatial dimensions of the picture plane and the ephemeral nature of painting itself. In Turner’s work there is an inventive and physical use of industrial materials – from kerosene, charcoal, soot and rust; the raw products of burning, oxidization and corrosion. Turner says, ‘The alchemical and ephemeral properties of materials and their polar opposition to the framework of a seemingly sterile environment continue to interest me today.’
