Gregor Turk

Atlanta, GA
Atlanta, Georgia-based Gregor Turk (Professor of sculpture) is known for his public art installations, ceramic sculpture, photography and mixed-media constructions. He often incorporates mapping imagery and cultural markings into his artwork. He focuses on the fundamental qualities of mapping — the mysteriousness, inherent biases, cultural authoritativeness, and ability to simultaneously represent and distort reality. Turk has permanent public art installations at the airports in Atlanta and Jacksonville, Florida, and his work is included in the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection, High Museum of Art, and numerous other public and private collections.
