Write Up: Born in Gallup, New Mexico, Ben Turner could claim Native American ancestry and that he was a descendant of the great British painter J.M.W. Turner. Turner channeled the art of his ancestors, as well as his deep affection for the natural world. He studied with Couse, Blumenschein, Higgins, and Sharp and while his work shares certain qualities with the Taos Society, Turner’s canvases pop with color and thick, rhythmic patterns.
