Jud Turner (Eugene, Oregon 1969 - )


Jud Turner Jud Turner has been working with found or re-purposed objects and welded steel for over 20 years, and although his training at the University of Oregon was focused on drawing and painting, he enjoys the process of making sculpture, finding objects which can be re-purposed, the long hours working in the solitude of the studio, and the way that his practice affects how he views the world around him.
Placing a high value on craftsmanship and surface appearance Turner balances realism with stylisation, and whilst infusing this with a sense of humour he manages to push concepts into the deep levels of the viewers perception. As a result Turner’s sculptures are visually engaging, and incorporate symmetry, repetition and intricate detail to balance the contemporary themes he explores.
