THE PAINT CLUB
A series of small, individually framed, oil on panel made paintings over the last two years, part of an ongoing series The Paint Club. The themes within the works inlcude perril, loss, devotion, and salvation.
“I like the notion that all painters essentially operate under the same conditions and that painting is somehow a different thing Art wise. I think once you realise painters paint the way they do because they can’t do it any other way, have spent years working towards this realisation, then Painting and the trappings of The Painter become interesting subjects in their own right.”
Daniel Turner is a contemporary British artist working in Cornwall whose work examines the rituals of the painter, the act of painting and the nature and functions of the painting and the studio.
All works are for sale.
