Nicholas Turner’s work is largely studio-based, prompted by both imagination and observed images, to invoke a sense of reflection and romanticism.


It is the process of organising colour relationships and compositional design that fascinates Turner, whether working with themes based on landscapes or still life.

...His sense of colour and instinctive restraint in creating his shadowy world of mystery is that of a natural storyteller, and we are the richer for being allowed a glimpse of his unique domain.
