Press Release

Allan Stone Projects is pleased to present Domenick Turturro: Works on Paper, on view May 16 – June 29, 2019. Turturro uses line and color to create joyous, energetic fields of abstraction. Recalling artists such as Mark Tobey and Jackson Pollock, Turturro has a layered approach that blurs the boundary between foreground and background, while he creates a sense of depth with his luminous colors.

 

Turturro often draws borders around his compositions, emphasizing the formal tension of his highly expressive gestures. While the overall forms of each piece may evoke flowers, land formations and patterned fabrics, Turturro’s muse remains an homage to abstraction.

 

Domenick Turturro was born in New York in 1936. He attended Cooper Union, the Pratt Institute and the New School for Social Research in New York. He has been exhibited at galleries and institutions throughout New York and abroad, and received a grant from the Gottlieb Foundation in 1984. His work is represented in several notable collections, including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C; the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Massachusetts; the Weatherspoon Art Museum, North Carolina and the Greenville County Museum of Art, South Carolina. The artist passed away in 2002.
