Opening Reception: February 7th, 2013 from 6-8pm
From time to time, in various artistic disciplines, one meets, however rarely, diverse individuals that are impossible to pigeonhole for the stylistic traits that don’t conform to the prevailingtendencies of the moment, individuals obstinately attached to their artistic vision of the world. Such is the painter Roman Turovsky, whose work is bothextraordinarily current and striving to exist outside of time.
Turovsky’s urban American landscapes are stark, depopulated. They exist in that liminal space of dawn or dusk, in the moment of perpetual imminence. The stillness of these landscapes is notstatic. In Turovsky’s subversion of space is a looming quality, something about to shift, slip, topple over. What is imminent here is movement, in the physical and musical sense – crescendo, collapse, the world dimming into darkness or on the verge of an explosion of light.
Born in 1961 in Kiev, Ukraine, Roman Turovsky has lived and worked in New York City since 1979. Turovsky has exhibited his work both in the United States and abroad. His paintings are part of the permanent collection of The Graham Center Museum, Wheaton, and The International Marian Institute, Dayton.
