The quest for a grater understanding of purpose and meaning is universal to our collective existence.

Paul Turounet is interested in storytelling, perspective, and the space between places, emotions, or states; the tension in his work often emerges from the gaps exposed. Estamos Buscando A (We're Looking For) is a photo-driven installation that examines the psychology of the US|MX border. It is composed of recovered border wall, intimate portraits of migrants on metal plates that the Artist calls retablos, sand, dirt, and found objects such as backpacks and tire-drags.Read More
