Origins + Garden of Color Press Release

The WAH Center (Williamsburg Art and Historical Center) is pleased to present the works of Annette Turow and Gabe Turow, a Mother-Son duo whose unique and organic creations echo one another stylistically despite their disparate mediums and processes.

Annette Turow’s work is imbued with a natural flow and harmony, the undefined, unrestrained forms and colors dance across the surface of her work, the washed tones resonating throughout the pieces. In describing her process, she states, “I always start with a sensation. It builds in my mind from an amorphous distraction to an active expression from my brush.”

In his ceramics, Gabe Turow seeks to explore and revel in the imperfections of the pottery making process, elevating the tension and disruptions in his creations, discovering that “perfection suddenly felt boring… it had no tension, no action” and concluded that “every asymmetry and crack is utterly unique, and so holds out the possibility for beauty if we get up close and really look.”
