Manly Beach II (2013) is one of a new series of Impressionist works, inspired by Nancy Kilgours Untitled (figures on Manly beach), c1930. Turner was drawn to her ability to project the reflective mood and emotional impression of life on Manly Beach. There is also a prevailing ability in her work to slow time down, which captivated him.
Turner seeks to slow us down to a pace where we can celebrate the overall mood and impression of enjoying life in the sun on Manly Beach. Using his lens as his paintbrush, Turner has used a variety of self-taught, in-camera techniques to free light and colour from their living stasis to paint this scene.
This photograph is raw and untouched (no Photoshop), producing a fresh, contemporary twist to modern day Impressionism and Pictorialist photography.
