Vadis Turner
Tennessee

Artist Statement Submitted 2017

I transform feminist materials into abstract paintings. Hand-dyed and up-cycled layers of ribbon, clothing and bedding are translated into brushstrokes. Each mark is hand sewn onto woven foundations, canvas or fixed in resin.

My compositions evolve from synthesizing female characters with specific atmospheric conditions and contrasting elements. The environment becomes a feminine force and the figure is absorbed by the turning landscape.
