"Turmeric II" is one of Jason Noushin's more traditional paintings. It features the a seated woman at its center and main focal point. This female figure appears in many of the artist's works, based on a woman he saw in a painting that has captured his attention ever since. In this piece, she is seated on a red stool with her arms draped over her crossed legs, and her eyes gazing off into the distance. This is a mixed media work, with some of the more unexpected materials including shellac and turmeric. Noushin takes a very traditional approach to priming his canvases, using rabbit skin glue as opposed to more modern canvas primers. This allows the raw material of the linen to show through. When making the piece, the artist sprinkled lines of turmeric on the canvas while the primer was still wet, creating impressions of the fragrant powder in the painting's surface. It adds a subtle dimensional quality to the overall composition.
