Melbourne artist and illustrator, Nadia Turner works in several mediums, including acrylic on wood and canvas, ink and watercolor, paper and textile collage. Her influences stream from many areas, from the art of the surrealists, especially that of Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington, the Pre-Raphaelites, traditional folk art, various children’s books and of course, ancient myth, symbolism and legends.
“I am fascinated by other worlds and other cultures. In my work I am trying to capture a moment in a characters life and evoke a sense of otherworldliness. Just like when you look at an old photograph, I want you to wonder….. who are these creatures?……what worlds do they live in?…and what are their dreams?”
