Kala Gallery in Morganton, NC, Features Works by Lance Turner

Kala Gallery in Morganton, NC, is presenting an exhibit of works by North Carolina painter, Lance Turner, on view through Aug. 31, 2013.

Turner specializes in systematically rearranged grid paintings and in life size or larger process-based photorealist portraits.

The artist says of his paintings, “The portraits that I paint allow for me to relate ideas and are only the product of my experience. Therefore, they more accurately depict what I believe to be the essence of painting, which is self-reference. My paintings are about my thought process as I create fictional characters through the relationship of stylistic devices.”

Turner is a 2012 MFA graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design and is a curator at the Hickory Museum of Art. He has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States including the National Ornamentals Metals Museum and Powerhouse Gallery in Memphis, TN; the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda, FL; the Southern Nevada Museum of Art in Las Vegas, NV; The Farmington Museum of Art in Farmington, NM; and The Woodruff Arts Center and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Atlanta, GA.

Turner’s work is found in several private collections in the US and will be featured at Kala Gallery.
