Seen: Turf One – Shining Darkness


21-DSC_1093-Edit

Fresh off his successful two-person show with Shawn Barber, Montreal-based French artist Turf One showcased his eclectic portraiture for Friday’s opening of his Shining Darkness solo in Thinkspace’s project room. Turf One’s paintings and his mixed media pieces utilizing found objects offer a glimpse into a fantastic carnival-like world populated by oddly proportioned people and the occasional circus monkey. The work demonstrates his wide range of artistic abilities mixing in elements of street art, graffiti, illustration and painting.  His art is captivating both in terms of the off-kilter subject matter as well as the considerable technical skill demonstrated.
