Thin Air | Thick Skin

RAY TURNER is attracted to moments of transition, to the rapid changes in diffuse light at dawn and dusk, or the intense but fleeting colors of autumn. This attention to change, the recognition of rescuing as instant form the continuous march of time that unites Turner's diverse bodies of work. Turner usually adopts an aerial perspective and builds into each of his landscapes the contrasting elements of light and darkness, motion and stasis, vitality and drama.
