About Sarah Turner

Originally from Bentonville, Arkansas, Turner moved to upstate New York to attend the New York College of Ceramics at Alfred University. She fell in Love with the embodied nature of light and sculpture, and the relationships she could form to her own body. She continued her investigations using neon as her primary medium and graduated in May 2021 with her BFA and a minor in Dance. 

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.
