Tonight: See Lance Turner's Infinities

Posted By on Fri, Dec 4, 2015 at 1:39 PM

You might know the artist Lance Turner from seeing his work at GLITCH, or from his pixelated mural of the late rocker Jay Reatard, located on the side of a furniture store in South Main. Turner is currently Crosstown Arts' first studio resident. Tonight, he will open an installation created during the four month residency. 

When I visited Turner's studio earlier this week — a small back room at Crosstown, the walls of which the artist has covered with zigzagging line work and systemically gradated colors — Turner said, "I work a lot with the concept of infinity."  

Turner's symmetrical paintings are extended by mirrors that he places at points throughout the space, and refracted by 3-D models, crafted to mimic the studio itself. The models descend in scale and wrap around each other, like nesting eggs. Forms recur throughout the visual excess: disembodied eyes, a circle of sharks with open mouths. 

Tonight's opening is from 7PM - 10PM at Crosstown. It is not to be missed.
