Jeremy Turner is a sculptor based in Shropshire with a particular interest in the imperatives, strategies, and necessities placed on us as a result of our relationships with industrial development and histories.
Sculpture is a vehicle through which I can explore the broad themes of history, industrial innovation, and technological development, interwoven with the often personal narratives of memory, anecdote, and curious fact. Simultaneously, I am fascinated and excited by the process of making and the manipulation of materials and objects, whether that is dictated by the needs of a particular work, or simply at a speculative level. I exhibit widely, at national and international levels.
I gained a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Manchester Polytechnic in 1992, an MA from Bretton Hall College in 1995, and a PhD by practice from the University of Leeds in 2001. During 1996 and 1997 I was Sculpture Research Fellow at Cheltenham & Gloucester College of Higher Education.
Having held a number of university lecturing posts, I am currently Programme Leader for Fine Art, and Senior Lecturer in Sculpture at the University of Chester.
