Terry Turrell

art | bio
  Terry Turrell uses unconventional, often recycled materials embodying beautiful yet rugged characteristics, true to his Northwest roots. Drawn to art his entire life, Turrell’s innate ability to transform the ordinary or overlooked is as unique as his style. Working intuitively, Turrell creates work that is both innocent and confrontational. His work can easily be defined as the perfect imperfect.

As a self taught artist, Turrell’s work is distinguished by a remarkable scope of subject matter and materials. He favors found materials for both sculpting and painting. The artwork is most often figurative in nature. It is textural with heavily worked surfaces. He favors both painting and sculpting equally and works with the two mediums simultaneously.

His work has been shown extensively throughout the United States since 1989.
