Hide CaptionShow CaptionStripping the apartment to its bare essentials, Daniel created a workspace and a place to showcase contemporary paintings and sculptures by local artists.
Daniel Turner hates clutter and doesn't care much for furniture and rugs either so he decided to go minimal. Very minimal. His 750-square-foot apartment is in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, once the center of the 1960s psychedelic pop culture and still a draw for musicians and artists. Daniel's apartment is more gallery space than living space.

Daniel's living room has bare white walls, two simple chairs and hardwood flooring—nothing to detract from the art. The relatively clear, well-lit area is idea for Turner and his artist friends to gather, conceptualize and critique art. Turner created this wall-sized piece made of tar on canvas with aluminum, plaster, gasoline and butter.
