Vadis Turner is an artist living in Nashville, TN. Her work, in recent years, has focused on the transitions a women encounters throughout her life and borrows from the experience of other women. We met on her mother’s land for this interview and she talks a lot about the inspiration she has garnered from her mother’s daily practices. Charred refuse and biological materials come together with more traditional art making products to create alchemical structures. This was an inspiring conversation that explored the ways her art practice has informed her mothering.
