Shawn Turung, S-10

Harwood Studio Artist since: 2005



Artist Statement

I make art to delight and to explore thoughts through imagery and believe we all share emotions and experiences that reflect viscerally through Art.

When making a piece, I embrace the 'insignificant' as well as the 'great' and try to make art that blends it together, not exactly chaos, but considering it all.

I believe, as an artist, I strive to bring delight, share a
unique perspective and to value the artistic pursuit enough
so that the experience of a piece is
honorably significant, genuine and memorable.

Current Studio Artist

Harwood Art Center is my sanctuary and my connection to the community.  It’s unusual and amazing to have these opposing forces satisfied in one place.  The Harwood community enriches my life because of studio artists, staff, teachers, and exhibits. Through classes at the Harwood Art Center and mentoring from influential New Mexico artists, I began painting in 2005.  My paintings have been included in exhibits at the Albuquerque Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, Mariposa Gallery in Albuquerque, and Patina Gallery, in Santa Fe.
