Alex Turner’s Bio:
Alex Turner is a senior graphic design major at Lewis University.
He is involved with being a team leader in Red Graphics (design club), the director of Harmonic Uprising (a cappella group), and the bass section leader in the chamber choir.
Furthermore, he previously participated in the 7th annual President’s Art Show, presented at the 2016 Celebration of Scholarship, and was published in the 2016 edition of Windows Magazine for winning 3rd place in the category of student visual art.
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.
Experimenting with technique to produce new and interesting results is what I strive for as an artist.
Out of my love for interpretation I tend to create abstract pieces.
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.
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.
