Turneramon (1940-2013)


"New age, post modernist painter of the sublime"

Perhaps “ trans-modernist” would be more appropriate, his inspiration and technique coming from the Old Masters, and his subject matter from his collection of numerous drawings and photos, the intention all along: to create allegorical works about the human experience: love, loss, life, death, sorrow, ecstasy, peace and beauty. Though beauty is not a typical ingredient for instant recognition nor acclaim, it is none the less, a constant theme in his work.

Even Turneramon's more recent output dealing with grief and lamentation is not without a certain stoic beauty in the concept of faith and perseverance over man’s inhumanity to man. “Apocalypse Gaza” a 5ft. By 7ft. Canvas, one of a recent series addressing the futility of war, is avowedly a non-partisan piece, and yet, like much of his poetry, it still has the power to move one emotionally, and cause one to question.

This website contains a selection of Turneramon's many paintings, created over the last four decades, and it is divided into sections dealing with the human condition. Above all, however, it is a tribute to one man's journey through life, and the paintings, along with his poetry, afford a window into his imaginings. We hope you will enjoy your journey, and would encourage you to leave your comments in our 'Reflections' section.
