An Arkansas native, Sarah Turner is a light and mixed media artist focusing primarily in her investigations with neon. Her work explores many themes surrounding the inner workings of the body, aspects of touch, negotiation of unseen boundaries and shared sensations. She aims to provoke a sensitivity using light as her medium of choice.
Sarah’s work is nostalgic in nature… “I think the nostalgia lies in the material! It's neon!! Its image and glow are of another time.”
Besides creating with neon, Sarah is a full time artist currently working at Sign Studio, a sign shop out of Lowell, Arkansas. “I have been an artist assistant and produced events in the arts. But before all that fun I worked a year and a half as a waitress at good ol Cracker Barrel. Event got employee of the month once.”
