Last week I was privileged to attend the opening of an exciting new exhibition by New York artist Vadis Turner at the Materials for the Arts Gallery in Long Island City.
After a summer-long artist’s residency at Materials for the Arts, she has created an entirely new body of abstract work that reflects a decade’s worth of mixed media experimentation.
“ MFTA is magic,” says Vadis, “what’s available in the warehouse freed me up in a lot of ways and steered my creativity, because I responded to what colours and textures were out there and figured out compositions based on what’s been donated.”
