Originating from Ireland, the 9 female artists and designers that collectively make up TURF moved to New York after graduating from various degrees in art and design. Each with the hope to pursue careers and experiences that their hometowns could not provide. The collective is tied to their Irish roots but enthralled by the vibrancy America has to offer.
22nd JUNE 2017
John Doe Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, 2017.
TURF female art collective will mark their territory in New York City by hosting a one-night exhibition entitled: TORN. The work displayed on the night is each artist's response to life in New York whilst being away from home.
"Most of us are TORN with the decision to leave a life, a lover and the land of opportunity. "
