For his debut solo exhibition with Hauser & Wirth, New York-based artist Daniel Turner will present works created from salvaged and recontextualized materials extracted from the Oxnard Generating Station, a decommissioned power plant in Oxnard, California.

About

Turner's transformation of remnants from the former electrical plant into a series of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and film echoes a calibrated process of material distillation and site-responsive reflection. 
 
Turner’s focused examination of the properties of alloys has led to large-scale paintings that utilize copper components extracted from the Oxnard site. Once removed, the material was spliced through an intricate milling process into refined copper wools. Subsequently, these wools were methodically burnished into the surface of the canvas, resulting in achromatic veils within his picture planes. 
 
In the sculpture 'Channel Conduit,' a coiled arrangement of materials stripped from the plant's infrastructure, which once facilitated the induction of seawater for temperature regulation, is displayed on the gallery floor. 
 
Turner’s latest film ‘Oxnard Harbor’ features aerial footage captured via drone depicting the vacated generating station. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Pacific Ocean, the monumental architecture points to the facility’s once substantial production of electricity for the greater Los Angeles region.
