Victoria studied at Camberwell College of Art and Chelsea College of Art,
graduating with BA Fine Art, First Class Honours. She is based in her London studio,
painting figurative and animal works on gold, drawing London landmarks and
undertaking commissions of a variety of subjects. Victoria has exhibited widely in the UK and overseas.
My work aims to communicate the intensity of the painted figure through pose,
gesture and expression. I create contemporary figurative images by mixing
traditional oil techniques and historical influences with modern mediums. The
juxtaposition of changing surfaces, materials and compositions act to heighten the
figurative image in each piece. Whilst the figures are painted thinly in oils, the
backgrounds use modern light-reflective pigments, taking the subject out of their
original context and place them into a realm without circumstances or conditions.
My new gold works, reference the historical importance gold has as a medium
within painting and creates a contemplative space for the figure in each piece.
