Shane Turner’s dripping paintings (Psychameleon) began as an exploration of painting the body, and wanting to see how much of the figure could be removed, while still having the beauty of the feminine contours remain apparent. The bold colors create an instant connection with the viewer, and the dripping liquid has, to him, a calming effect that allows people to just look at the whole image while the figure reveals itself. By using a variety of acrylic paints and effects mediums, the dripping pieces literally have a physical presence and draw to them. The dimensional raised paint, with the glossy colors standing out from the matte solid color background, create a very dynamic image in person.
