Trudi Entwistle is an artist whose work lies between land art, sculpture and design. Explorations develop around site, memory, association and place. Her work is site-specific, investigating how sculptural forms integrate with their surroundings, interacting with human movement and the changing elements of light, weather, natural growth and decay. For more than 20 years commissions have taken her to diverse landscapes from her local Pennine hills to around the world, such as America, Finland, Lithuania, Taiwan, Germany, Japan, and South Korea. Her work is either temporary or permanent which has been exhibited and used as a stage hosting events ranging in scale from social gatherings or remains, simply, as a focus for the solitary act of contemplation.
Her current work has focused on a range of mixed media exploration in the gallery setting. This gallery work directs her land art response to places.
Trudi is closely linked to the education of art and design in the landscape. Her initial training was in Landscape Architecture, and as a senior lecturer in Landscape Architecture at Leeds Beckett University, she encourages the crossing of boundaries through interdisciplinary teaching.
