Tensions: Beach Stone 15

2016

About

Marble and Baja Beach stones Base: 3/4 x 14 x 7 inches. Elizabeth Turk creates works that push the limits of her chosen medium of marble with hand-carved forms that defy their materiality while speaking to larger conceptual and spiritual concerns. A recipient of numerous awards, including a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship (2010), a Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation Fellowship (2010), and a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship (2011), Turk is internationally recognized for transforming her signature medium of marble into strikingly intricate objects that defy convention and challenge our preconceptions of what marble can do. Through the use of electric grinders, dental tools, and files, Turk pushes her medium to its limit, creating in each sculpture a provocative tension between the intrinsic strength of the stone and its inherent fragility, while speaking to larger conceptual and spiritual concerns of time, matter, and space. During the sixteen years that Turk has been represented by Hirschl & Adler Modern, the gallery has mounted four extensive solo exhibitions of her work, each accompanied by publications; as well as a solo Art Kabinett at Art Basel Miami Beach (2012), a solo presentation at Masterpiece London (2014), and a solo presentation at the ADAA Art Show in 2017. Across all of these venues, the work was met with critical and commercial success from individuals based in South America, Europe, and the U.S. Turk’s work resides in numerous prestigious private and public collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; the National Gallery of Art (formerly, the Corcoran Gallery of Art) and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; the Weatherspoon Gallery, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, NC; and The Mint Museum, Charlotte, NC. Institutional monographic exhibitions include “Elizabeth Turk: Sentient Forms,” Laguna Art Museum, CA (2015); “Elizabeth Turk: Wings,” The Dayton Art Institute, OH (2013); and “Elizabeth Turk, The Collars: Tracings of Thought,” Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte, NC (2004). Born in Pasadena and raised in Orange County, Elizabeth Turk (b. 1961) earned her M.F.A. at the Rinehart School of Sculpture, Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.
