ERIKA TURVEY ART GALLERY

ERIKA TURVEY ART GALLERY

ABOUT US

Expressing her view of the world and its people, Erika Turvey’s free-spirited art connects with her past, her subject, and with the viewer through her use of colour and texture. For Erika, living her life as a free spirit means embracing spontaneity – a quality she expresses through her art – with the result showing a bold juxtaposition of unconventionality and reality.

While most in her element in front of a canvas, Erika also values engaging clientele at her gallery in Wilderness. Having worked with art distributors from the age of 18, she understands the business side of her art equally well as the visually impactful side. Her art has proudly made its way to countries such as Australia, Singapore, Switzerland, Russia, Italy, and many more. At her gallery, Erika also presents the occasional art workshop and live event.

CONTENT & FREE

An almost unmissable feature of Erika’s art is her use of birds in much of her work. Sometimes mistaken for religious symbols, Erika clarifies that “birds are very symbolic for me. They represent a memory of something I saw in the past and where I am in the present, content and free at the same time.”

ABOUT ERIKA

“Art helps me to communicate. You might say it is my language that allows me to visually express my thoughts and emotions. Flight, escapism, conscience, and life are some topics I love to work with. I don’t use live models or photos as references when I paint my portraits; thus, my figures are not always anatomically correct. All the people I create on canvas are from my dreams or memories and don’t exist until I start painting them. They are a direct expression of emotion, and each one is unique.”
