Artist Statement Submitted 2019Vadis Turner transforms feminist materials into abstract paintings and sculptures. Connecting generations of women, her work re-contextualizes domestic textiles and other gendered goods.
Each work fuses archetypal female figures with storied forms and landscapes. Content is drawn from literature, history and community outreach from specific populations of women. Embodying multiple identities, Turner’s works often occupy places between textile and painting, and the wall and floor.
