"My art tells my visual story, as my distorted eye perceives the world in fragments with much haze and blurriness.. The layers, the hazy colors, the blur, the lines, the spots all depict my own visual story expressed digitally."
Daman Gill-Tur is a California based self-taught visual artist. She creates abstract paintings using digital medium. After graduating from New York University- College of dentistry, she practiced as a DDS for 10+ years till recent changes with her eye put a pause on that. After losing visual acuity in one eye, she turned to her art and started spanning out pieces which would otherwise have not been created if not for her distorted vision. Her art is a positive spin on her battle with disability.
