Malcolm Turner was born in England in 1941. but moved to Johannesburg, South Africa with his parents when he was 11 years old. During his extensive travels all over the world with the merchant navy, he developed an excellent eye for layout, design, scenes and portraits. He started painting at the age of 50 and celebrated his 75th birthday on the 6th of October 2016. Due to his keen desire to stay in contact with many of the people that he was fortunate to meet and became good friends with throughout his life he has an international clientele and has received commissions from people in Australia, the UK, and the USA, to name a few.
For Malcolm art is all about portraying people, landscapes, seascapes, boats, underwater scenes, and places of interest that emerge in all their glory. As Malcolm expressed himself, "It is not so much about the location or the subject, but how it emerges as a creation that stands on its own merit as a thing of beauty and design. The portrayal of my art comes from my belief that our thoughts and beliefs determine the outcome of our lives. By seeing the patterns and rhythms of nature, we echo the dreams of our hearts, so we engage with creation to reveal the truth that we see in creation to men. There are shadows and there are lights, differing tones in complex patterns that form the visions that we see, and this is my reality. Depending on how much confusion or peace lies within us determines how we view the world; and how we view the world determines our quality of life. Hopefulness produces joy; fear and anxiety rob us of the same. I want to depict scenes of tranquility, peace and joy so that people may see light in the midst of darkness. My paintings are a portrayal of hope and light. You can say that my work is "Art and Soul".
Malcolm has had several group and solo gallery exhibitions in Johannesburg, Hermanus, Stellenbosch and Mossel Bay. He currently has many of his artworks at his friend Ed Parmiter's Tripps Gallery in Nova Scotia, Canada. His wife Jessica also promotes and markets his art on Facebook where his work is also sold on the last week of each month on Envy Direct Online Auctions. He also sells prints locally and online at Fine Art America.
