Lou Zona said of Maple, “It is proof positive that Turner’s talent level is in the elite category. He has flown under the radar perhaps because he has spent so much time studying in Europe and New York. They
used to say about the artist Robert Rauschenberg that he would go into a closet and in 20 minutes could come out with a work of art. The same could be said of Maple Turner. He possesses that level of skill and creativity.
