Monday and Tuesday : CLOSED
Victoria makes contemporary abstract landscape paintings from her home studio in Angus. She has a deep love of horizon lines found in remote and open spaces – and seeks out colour, shapes and patterns in the places she visits. Her work responds to the changing elements and the rhythm of the landscape and she explores the visual tensions that arise when sky meets sea meets land.
She translates these experiences into bold, striking and abstract paintings. Each artwork is a reflection from a particular place – a memory of a moment.
Walking, running and cycling are an integral part of Victoria’s practice – she explores her environment armed with a basic knowledge of the physical geography of the landscape, a geekish interest in maps and cloud formation and a desire to breathe in the intoxicating wilderness air!
Victoria predominantly uses acrylic paints to make her paintings. To create the energy and variety of marks she strives for, she also uses a mixture of other media such as ink, pencils and oil pastels. She adopts a playful approach to her making – she enjoys experimenting with textures, opacity, patterns and colour. She uses processes such as layering, scraping, distressing and re-painting.
Victoria graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art + Design with a BDes (Hons) in Constructed Textiles, and went on to complete a Master of Fine Art.
She has exhibited throughout Scotland and the rest of the UK and has artworks in private collections across the world.
