HATCHED The Creation of the Universe // “Hatched” is the story of creation of the Universe from an egg. The show explores this creation through Chinese folklore, Greek mythology, Buddhism and Quantum theories. Through these inspirations another realm opens to us. Here, we witness our existence personified by birds, landscapes, the sun and moon. These elements come together to illustrate the beginning of time and space, to explore ideologies (ancient and new) from across the globe and to inspire life and unity. The stories told in each piece vary, but the overall message is that every living being, be it humans, animals or nature, derives from one common place, the Universe. While we all endure individuality and diversity we are interconnected in this way. The universe unites us. The universe hatched us.

Thomas Turner takes inspiration from Chinese folklore, Greek mythology, Buddhism and Quantum theories to illustrate poetic explorations of universal human origin and connectedness. Turner plays with classical and traditional symbols in a contemporary palette and style where the viewer is witness to our existence and conception personified through birds, landscapes and celestial bodies. Turner has previously been a part of numerous group exhibitions in Atlanta including Kai Lin Art’s “The New South” and “Fresh”. This is Turner’s first solo exhibition.
