John Edward Turley - acrylic on canvas
The Reclamation Series is comprised of several environmental themed paintings. Most of them combine man-made shapes and structures seeming to be overwhelmed and taken over by organic shapes like vines or shifts in the earth. They were inspired by what the artist observed in his surroundings in the Pacific Northwest. What the artist hopes to convey in this series is the power of Mother Earth to reclaim what is Hers.
