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.

Kris Mills

Former Studio Artist

I was in Harwood’s very first show called Road To Chaos, organized by Jeff Kruger. My dog, Micro, was also in that show eating 30 hot dogs in a performance piece by Bryan Konefsky. I had two studios at two different times. The most recemt, I used the studio to do serigraphy with my collaborative friend Tom Loeb. LThe first time, I used the studio to make sculpture. Harwood has given me many opportunities to show my own art and curate shows about the work my community, Albuquerque makes.  My dog Pablo and I are in and out of Harwood’s doors a lot because I now live in the neighborhood.
