Focusing on posture, Victoria’s androgynous figures are captured at the edge of movement with a gentle reminiscent humour present in their body language.
Using wet clay or plaster, she gains a fluidity that condenses a pose to its bare essentials. Through this connection with the land she conjures up a sense of coming from the earth and being part of the natural life cycle. Monoliths and stone circles are evident, a sense of perpetual time and the feeling that something so still can evoke so much power. Although the poses of her sculptures are often static, their stillness has a presence.
“I’m always intrigued by shadows or ghost images of somebody. When you close your eyes, features of a face or posture often don’t emerge but the ‘essence/soul’ of somebody does.”
Victoria took her sculpture degree at City and Guilds of London Art School in the late 1980s where the emphasis was on a classical training in life drawing and sculpture. She has also completed several commissioned bronze portraits.
Victoria was commissioned to produce a life size bronze statue of Rudyard Kipling for Burwash High Street, which was unveiled in February 2019.
