New Paintings: Turovskiy and Turk

Wednesday March 19
Igor Turovskiy grew up in Belarus, immersed in natural and architectural beauty. Those surroundings influenced his artistic interests, and sparked his career as a graphic artist. In 1992, he moved to America and opened his own graphic design studio in Virginia Beach. Several years later, he found his niche in the world of abstract art. His pieces are created with a mixture of metallic mica pigments, resin and fluid acrylics. Employing the viscous effects of epoxy resin in conjunction with the fluid motion of the liquid acrylic Turovskiy is able to freeze his compositions in time.

The extremely reclusive Oklahoma artist Joe Turk is a self-taught outsider artist. His oil on canvas paintings stem from an emotional bubble in time which Joe has drawn on for inspiration over the last three years. His compositions are narrative and biopic in nature. Though Joe has been painting for many years he formally entered the arts scene in early 2013. His highly emotional artworks drew swift applause from collectors who were struck by the emotive paintings. Since experiencing a swift rise in popularity Joe has relocated out of state where he paints most of the month; returning home for short stints to his hometown Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Paseo Originals Art Gallery will host a public reception for "New Paintings, Turovskiy & Turk," featuring new works by Igor Turovskiy and Joe Turk, on Friday, March 7th from 6:00-10:00 PM during the First Friday Art Walk on Paseo. The reception and all associates events are free and open to the public. The gallery will host a closing reception for the exhibit on Friday, April 4th from 6:00 - 10:00 PM. The exhibit is scheduled to run through April 12th. Paseo Originals Art Gallery, voted Best Art Gallery 2012 & 2013 by the Oklahoma Gazette readership and Best Art Gallery by the Daily Oklahoman's readership in the 2013 Readers Choice Awards, is a private fine art gallery located in the Historic Paseo Arts District.
