About the Artist

“The Lie of the Land” is a visually evocative and illuminating exhibition devoted to Turshen’s recent work. The exhibition shows new bold, layered and textured paintings in oil on paper, with traces of pastel and graphite. Her pieces radiate light and draw inspiration from the environment, and their titles are taken from the poems of contemporary women poets.

Turshen’s artwork is reflected on nature in landscape and still life, on the grace, whimsy and mystery of the human figure and on the magic and tensions in relations between people. She likes to represent these ideas nonfiguratively in abstract compositions. Her images are often drawn from close observation of her surrounding at the basis of layered work.
