TURTURRO

Ralph Turturro was born in New York. He received his B.A. from University of Wisconsin and his M.F.A. from Pratt Institute. Since then, he has participated in a residency at Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts.
 

He is known for his contemporary tenebroso style. The primitive scrawls in Turturro’s work are about depth and texture. The color, texts and inadvertent images that grow out of his process of painting are tools he uses to discover a world as he describes as “eternally, cosmically and universally real.” He sees this process as similar to that of “an archeologist discovering found objects that send one reeling back and forth through time.” Communication through a visual is important to him. Some of Turturro’s major influences are Willem Dekooning, Jackson Pollock, and Cy Twombly. He has exhibited extensively in New York and San Francisco since 1989.

 

“Painting is something that continues to fill me with wonder and awe. It is a process not unlike like being an archeologist discovering found objects that send one reeling back and forth through time. Everyday it brings you closer to your mortality; demands that you face yourself for better or for worse; teaches you to accept and cherish loss as an indelible element of time; the unmitigated truth of it as well as it’s horrors and it’s beauty.” - Turturro
