Viyki Turnbull


My work is a mixture of works on paper and site specific installations. I use drawing, printmaking, collage, assemblage and textiles to create largely figurative works that depict everyday objects and places. I like that objects can describe a place, a time, a person or community through the way that they have been used or left. I draw attention to how these materials are used or have been used to comment on those relationships and histories. Sometimes it is the material properties of an object itself that becomes the subject of my work. I graduated from Norwich School of Art in 1999 with a BA(hons) in Fine Art and began working with public art organisations and local museums and heritage sites. I now work as an artist and freelance lecturer with a number of museums and galleries across London including the Camden Arts Centre, National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery. read full statement
