About Trudi Entwistle
Trudi practices both as an Artist and Landscape Architect. Her artwork lies somewhere between the boundaries of land art, sculpture and design. It is site specific and investigates 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 fifteen years projects have taken her to wild places and urban environments throughout the world, where her work, either temporary or permanent, has been used as a stage for theatrical production, play and social gathering or remains, simply, as a focus for the solitary act of contemplation.
Trudi Entwistle is a Senior Lecturer in Landscape Architecture and Level 4 coordinator. Trudi teaches at all levels of the undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum. She has a track record of delivering quality teaching and learning in the following areas: art, design and cross-disciplinary practice.
Trudi has been awarded the Leverhulme Artist in Residence with water@leeds at the University of Leeds. The residency explored how water influences the character of the landscape in and around the uplands of the South Pennines. This mixed media exhibition follows Trudi's changing perspective of this landscape based on dialogue with the scientists who study the upland environment.
