San Francisco-based artist Julia Turner creates graphic and sculptural pieces that are strong and subtle, beautifully crafted and a pleasure to live with. Her award-winning work has been exhibited internationally and has been included in numerous publications.
In her own words, "Julia’s work is driven by a continuous exploration of materials and techniques from diverse disciplines. Her studio tables are piled with small experiments in form and surface which she arranges and re-arranges, finding tensions, creating compositions, moving ideas forward and developing the strongest impulses into finished work. She freely combines everything that interests her; mixing hot and cold connections, carving and fabricating, wood and gold, traditional enamel and industrial paint. Her work reflects a fascination with the boundary between the human-built and natural worlds, the beauty of accidental collaborations between them, and our often funny ideas about what we can and can’t control."
