Mixed Media, Paper, Acrylic
Abstract mixed media painting made of 1" hand cut paper hexagons gridded out on canvas and covered in clear acrylic. The large collage includes a large amount of imagery that has to do with the human body (like skulls, eyeballs, muscles, etc.) and was created by Texas artist, Patrick Turk.
Quasi-scientist and self-taught artist, Patrick Turk explores the mysteries of the universe in his highly detailed and imaginative hand-cut paper assemblages. Images taken from any number of resources including: science-fiction novels, encyclopedias, history and scientific diagrams, are cut and assembled in oftentimes multidimensional surfaces to create a curious and dark narrative. Says Turk, “The intense levels of detail become a microcosm, forming a reflection of the human relationship to the plasticity of time and space, and to the process of self-unfolding.” Patrick Turk was born in Galveston, Texas and lives and works in Houston.
