Portland-based Lynne Woods Turner often creates meditative geometric compositions. At times, her works recall fabric patterns, abstracted diagrams, or flattened three-dimensional shapes, (seen in this untitled work), and yet they seem more distant and intimate than any of these examples. Her choice of soft colors, textural paper, and vibrating lines are a testament to a uniquely human touch that comes through in an otherwise straightforward work. Turner has work in the collections of a number of public institutions, including the Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the San Diego Museum of Art; Seattle Arts Commission, Seattle; UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and the Yale University Museum, New Haven.
