Paul Robert Turner
Artists Statement

“It’s difficult for me to pin down one particular idea to describe my work. Although technically consistent, conceptually my work varies. I work with traditional oil painting techniques, occasionally in combination with mixed media techniques. I have always had a deep appreciation of any painting that provides the illusion of volume and depth.  When composing my imagery I try not to think of the canvas as a flat surface, but a window to another space.  The pursuit of a three dimensional compositional flow is very important to me and varies in intensity depending on the subject matter or idea that I am depicting. I continuously attempt to link together technique, composition and concept. Where applicable I attempt to choreograph my subjects in such a way so that ones position and demeanor seems to be directly related to the other, a balance between poise and candor. I employ a systematic use of symbols or pictorial conventions to express meaning. I attempt to apprehend a more absolute truth in my work through the use of human activity or real world phenomena in a suggestive and metaphorical manner.” -Paul Robert turner, 2008
