Biography

 Born in Romania, George Dragomir Turia earned his Honors Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Arts in Bucharest, Romania. Turia's early passion for the anthropomorphic and his continuous efforts to express the subtle relationship between material and spiritual through art was concretized, during and after his university studies, in unique cycles of sculptural ceramic works that soon became his very own, distinctive mark.

  The uniqueness of his shapes and his problematic and themes determined local and international art collectors to take growing interest in his works. After years of intensive focus on sculpture, the artist started transposing the same problematic on canvas, masonite and wood, and felt challenged to express sculptural volumes and ceramic materiality with other art media. While featuring the same vision of the dual nature of the human being, his paintings retain the incredibly sensual textures of the sculptural surface.

  The deep, warm tones define the characters and their stories visually and enhance their palpable, earthy materiality. In Turia's works, the continuous dynamics of the inner self determines the spiritual evolution of the human being. His characters have lost their exterior identification marks, as the subtle, invisible world of inner experiences has become prevalent. The human shape is refined and reduced to its basic characteristics, it has become the framework, the space of manifestation of the self. Diverse experiences, from the struggle to preserve the inner child to integrating and mastering the major experiences of every age - love, harmony and deep understanding, misfits and misunderstandings, troubles and traumas - become central in Turia's works, organize the memory discourse, define the self and eventually construct identity. The characters interfere with one another in unexpected ways, they become one, develop intense relationships, complement and sometimes hurt each other. This dynamics often imposes need for a coherent visual narrative, reflected in works developed on two or three compositional registers or in two or three works adjoined in a horizontal or vertical evolvement.

 

George Turia currently lives and works in Toronto.
