Sydney Unseen is a new photographic installation by Turner, commissioned by Manly Art Gallery & Museum on The Great Wall of Manly in the Gallery’s forecourt. This series was specifically developed in response to the Gallery’s major concurrent Summer exhibition, Destination Sydney, showcasing masterpieces of three major artists; Lloyd Rees, Brett Whiteley and Elisabeth Cummings.
Sydney Unseen is a vibrant series of contemporary, abstract lightscapes, “painted” entirely through the lens, unveiling the romance, mystery and unseen beauty of Sydney through light and colour.
Via the camera’s lens, Turner visualizes symphonies of light and colour spawned from a gravitational pull to art history’s Romantic period. The essence of light is gleaned from self-developed, manual and unconventional techniques, enabling Turner to capture unseen impressions of light, its explosive sensitivity and beauty.
