Ralph Turturro is a New York artist inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, Willem De Kooning and Mark Rothko. He uses organic elements and other surface builders to create compositions that are clear, straightforward and evoke thought.
Turturro earned his MFA at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and has had numerous solo and group exhibitions on the East Coast primarily in New York, North Carolina, Connecticut and Washington D.C.
The work is about trying to break through the temporal, illusive flash of the physical world that is eternally, cosmically and universally real. The color, textures, texts and inadvertent images that grow out of my process of painting are the tools I use to discover the world beyond.
