Alex Turner’s Process:

After having presented at the Spring 2016 Celebration of Scholarship on the properties and interactions of different materials in art, I have continued to explore my ideas and love for mixed media.

The Mire

Experimenting with technique to produce new and interesting results is what I strive for as an artist.

"What You Sow"
“What You Sow”

Out of my love for interpretation I tend to create abstract pieces.

"Buried Below"

Being able to shape the outcome of a piece that is created without any clear intention, other than the idea of what materials to use, is incredibly rewarding. 

"Minotaur's Sacrifice"

Many of the pieces in this collection utilized fire as a key element; some more noticeable than others.


While there is a realized theme in each piece, something new can always be seen.
