Meranda Turbak Art

My paintings are reflections of my meandering notions on life, from general questions to deeply personal discoveries. I use my art to confront issues brought up by pop culture as well as tradition. I am mostly concerned with cultural and personal expectations, struggling with matters relating to identity, specifically: success, happiness, relationships, intimacy and privacy.
In the beginning, I paint for play. I fling paint around a canvas with the same oblivious freedom that once allowed me as a child to dance like a maniac in the front yard, with no concern of looking like a fool. As in life, eventually, I grow up. Out of an insatiable need to make sense of things, I recognize myself emerging from the random splatters of paint. I explore depth by shading with pen until mysterious little landscapes form. Each piece of work begins this way. From the abstract landscape, I etch a portrait to identify with, slowly using my pen to chisel away at those brief moments of clarity.
No painting has one specific concept. Each is a web made up of private reflection and social commentary. Similar to a diary, my paintings are my ramblings. One thought leads to one dot, which leads to the next. The first line may have nothing to do with the last.
