Valerie Turton. Visual Artist.
Currently works from Surface Gallery Studios. Nottingham.
"Nature Ritual Hanging" investigates lost tradition, folklore and ritual.
Objects, found and reconstructed represent the forgotten, discarded fragments of a past time.
My interest in Contemporary Drawing practice follows an enquiry into repetitive, meditative mark making.
"Ritual Drawing " has been developed over many months. Time and repetition create a space for separation from the work and an ultimate stillness of line.
