Victoria explores the process of painting through the use of paint
in various textures and colours.
The process of painting is what interests her primarily, losing
all inhibitions, accidental spilling and dripping the paint, the amount
of paint and the colour used can be controlled, unexpected marks
being created, and learning how to apply and reapply. The accidental
dripping paint creates diverse, extraordinary and attractive lines
and shapes, that together with the textures create a variety of
compositions of landscapes, seascapes and waterscapes.
Victoria produces paintings that could be interpreted as abstract
art that chooses to express herself throiugh the paint using various
texture and mark making, adding and removing sections of each painting
and enhancing each texture with each mark made.
The mediums used in her paintings are acrylics with acylics mediums,
watercolours, gouache and inks - the mediums are flexible in mixing
and applying in layers. Her intenton is to allow the paint to be
informal and vulnerable - this could be interpreted as many kinds
of art from Abstract, Expressionistic to Defective art.
Throughout Victoria's paintings she has researched the artist Hans
Hoffman. In his work he has communication between recognisable image
and the abstract shape, usingf spontaniety and control.
