Shapiro Projects officially launches January 23rd on New York City’s Upper East Side with Animate Forces, a solo exhibition of paintings, many shown for the first time, by the Ukrainian-born artist.
[box][quote]This new exhibition represents Mr. Turovsky’s radical artistic shift towards larger, brighter, and more positive works. Luscious fruit, sensuous nudes, and hypnotic landscapes embrace vibrant life-affirming colors. The luxuriously textured surfaces excite the senses and invite the viewer to engage in an intensely emotional experience.[/quote][/box]
The 44 paintings, dating from 1991 to 2015, comprise Mr. Turovsky’s body of works that follow the decade he spent in the 1980s creating his critically-acclaimed Holocaust series which the New York Times said “hammers at a viewer’s sensibilities,” and “convey Mikhail Turovsky’s hellish vision.”
