Elizabeth Turk

Convergence: Featuring a new series of photographs by 2010 MacArthur Genius Award recipient, Elizabeth Turk. Turk recently completed a SARF Fellowship at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum where she had access not only to the Smithsonian's collections but their equipment as well. This new body of work will premiere at SCAPE and will showcase 16 artworks of various sizes that are a direct result of her Smithsonian Fellowship. These photo based artworks are connected to her sculptures in many ways - blending complex components from science and nature through her art. This new body of work uses X-ray and photography methods to expose the layering of shell structures (from the Smithsonian) which in turn reveal the strength and beauty seen in the sacred geometry of her subjects.
