Christie's Studio Visit with Artist Khari Turner


Khari Turner creates striking paintings that combine abstraction and figuration in order to, as he puts it, ‘rejuvenate the relationship of my history to my ancestors’ history with water.’ As a Black American originally from Milwaukee, Turner’s work is steeped in this violent history and yet he chooses to celebrate his ancestors ‘for surviving the challenges they faced’ rather than reenacting their suffering.
