AUB Alumna, Fay Turner, completed her BA in Fine Art in 2017 and has since had great success as a practising artist, her most recent accomplishment being the completion of the Hertford Arts Hub residency programme.

The residency, based in Hertfordshire, UK, ran from November 2018 to February this year and is organised by Sarah Mayson who also manages the Hertford Arts Hub Gallery which opened in 2016.

With the residency programme being a new addition in the last year, it is a new opportunity that showcases the visual arts from the local community.

Fay explained: “It was a pleasure to be one the first artists to work at Hertford Arts Hub. The residency felt right for me as the organisers just wanted the artist to be inspired by the work of Alan Davie, an artist they have been displaying since opening the space. This open brief was wonderful for a young artist like me, still experimenting and figuring out their practice.”

‘My practice revolves around moving image, experimenting with animation to video installations, creating films to entice and confuse my audience. I am captivated by the latest in digital technologies and my work often utilises computer-generated effects. I use a green screen to put myself into worlds I’ve created and made. Through my artwork, I attempt to navigate complex digital issues and questions our place in our current digital landscape and its possible future’
