Christine Turner creates abstracted landscapes that suggest a blurring of perception, sight, and space. Interested in literal and metaphorical blindspots, Turner pulls from her experience of having been legally blind in one eye temporarily as a child, in order to create compressed and disordered spaces. Turner’s paintings are rendered with translucent pours, repetitive line work, and gloppy speed bumps of paint, in order to accumulate into visual puzzles that connote a psychological or emotional place.

Born in 1990 in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, Christine Turner received her BFA from Biola University in 2012, and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2020. She has exhibited her work at Leimin Space and the Inland Empire Museum of Art in Los Angeles, CA, as well as the Elmhurst Art Museum and JAW Gallery in Chicago, IL.
