Turner G. Davis
The exhibition “Stone Soup” is comprised of mostly new images and decorated found objects by Turner G. Davis. The title of the show reflects the diversity of mediums and the underlying themes of existential search for meaning and a yearning and aversion to clarity in the 21st Century. In the original story called “Stone Soup” a soldier convinces his unlikely hosts to contribute to an unlikely recipe. It is only through their (in this case the viewer) contributions that the result becomes, in fact, nourishing and of import. It is the hope of the artist to create an environment of pictures and objects that comprise the first ingredients of a larger collaboration and investigation.
