About the Art

Domenick Turturro, American (1936 - )All-over abstraction tends to lure painters toward heroics. Domenick Turturro's new paintings show all-over patternings, yet he avoids the difficulties of his style admirably. They are covered in a gestural fashion, but the artist's hand is always guided by a notion of shape particular to each work. Sometimes this shape is islandlike and orange, floating in profusion against a dark background. Sometimes the shapes are fan- or flower-like, scraped onto the surface in arcs to achieve an effect of bright translucency. Occasionally, a very subtle reference to printed fabrics is made. Here, low-keyed shapes are repeated across the surface with variations that suggest the play of very soft interior light. Turturro's range of color is extraordinary, from keyed-up, "artificial" aquas and magentas to maroons and ochres which seem almost to have acquired a patina of use. This latter effect is an illusion, a helpful one. It reminds the viewer that paintings do indeed have a use, they are intended to engage the eye. This can be done, as so many allover painters attempt to do by overwhelming the eye. Turturro avoids the grandiose by holding the scale of pictorial incident to a very intimate scale. The eye enters his paintings where shapes float toward each other or touch or overlap in especially interesting ways. The eye stays with "the painting because it is always guided toward variations" on the initial incident whatever it may be in a particular viewing. Sometimes the eye is drawn over this surface. Sometimes it is drawn into the shallow space between shapes.
