Artist Spotlight: Vadis Turner

Interviewed by Lillian Klein

I synthesize the practice of painting with feminist materials. Hand-dyed and up-cycled layers of domestic textiles are translated into brushstrokes. Marks are hand sewn onto woven foundations, canvas or fixed in resin. The compositions merge female characters with storied landscapes and contrasting elements, revealing the underbelly of the female archetype.
