Peter Turner is an artist working with music composition, recording, photography, videography, painting, sculpture, and other creative mediums. His work is an exploration of the dark and light, the internal and external, the spiritual and the material, and the multiple aspects of creation. He seeks the essence of his subjects and the archetypal energy that is the root of all things. Transformation, natural eros and earth energy are the basis for his art.
