Often drawing on memory and emotion, Crystal Tursich's diaristic work hovers between staged self-portraits, constructed moments, and the softly focused vignettes of plastic and toy cameras. Her most recent body of work, In Silence, deals with loss and illustrates the lingering complex emotions following such an experience.

Crystal Tursich is an artist based in Columbus, Ohio. In recent years, her work has been included in exhibitions in Wichita, Kansas; Murray, Kentucky; Peoria, Illinois; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Cincinnati, Columbus, and Dayton, Ohio. Tursich is the 2019 EMERGE Fellowship Award winner for Midwest Center for Photography. She is a member of Roy G Biv Galley, Society for Photographic Education, Houston Center for Photography, and Filter Photo. Tursich currently serves as an Upper School Art Teacher at Columbus Academy. Previously, she has held positions as a Lecturer at The Ohio State University and an Adjunct Instructor at Columbus College of Art & Design.
