Pittsburgh artist, Scott Turri, interprets an excess of technology and the erosion of private life in an ever growing public world as both a deafening yet inspiring influence in his work.

Scott draws upon ephemeral visual sources that may or may not be recognizable such as a rasterized image of lake water, along with invented linear and shape like forms. Compositions resulting from these sources are infused with the language and look of Pop, Minimalism, and post-painterly abstraction.

Although he utilizes today’s technology, Turri still has the desire to subjugate it to the hand made. This is why he remains a painter in today’s digital climate. The process of making the paintings is an integral part of his practice. Although the paintings are smooth, made with precision and with little evidence to the hand, they are still expressive. The approach allows the viewer to respond to the image in its graphic manifestation.
