Opening Reception: Systems and Portraits at Push Gallery

  • Location:
    PUSH Gallery, 25 Patton Avenue, Asheville, North Carolina, North Carolina, 28801, US

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.

Reception Friday, September 5th from 6-9pm. The exhibition lasts through October 10th.
