David Turner is an artist who works in a variety of media. His artworks stem from an interest in early 8-bit computer graphics of which several reoccurring subject matters can be recognised. Choosing images created by computer programs, he touches on various overlapping themes and strategies, such as the relationship of popular culture and the media. Working with repetition, provocation and the investigation of the process of expectations, Turner tries to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations. Turner?s materials in affect are children?s toys, such as Hama Beads, LEGO and Plasticise. ?Hama Beads are assembled on pegboards and then fused together with a smoothing iron to form a single image. Children often use the beads to make 8-bit graphic characters form early computer games such as Pac Man or Mario. I have commandeered this idea to construct two-dimensional digital images, using each bead as a physical pixel? Turner creates situations in which these objects are altered or detached from their natural function. Used in ?bit and part? he creates rich and textured imagery and sculptures, which often reproduces familiar visual signs. Specific combinations and manipulations may be arranged into new conceptually layered information. Metaphorically and intrinsically this can be seen as more than the sum of its parts.
