Big Sky Tonight
Acrylic on Canvas
16" x 20"
Born in southern Ontario, Victoria has continued to study at the Halliburton School of Fine Arts, Neilson Park and the Burlington Art Centre. She currently paints from her studio in Hamilton, cottage in Halliburton and lives in her home in Oakville, with her husband and three children.
Victoria’s dramatic skies have become her signature, inviting the viewer to consider the heavens while pondering the wonders of a flower’s bloom. Flowers painted from the perspective of an ant provide striking contrast to the clouds and sky that frame these still life images. The juxtaposition creates a surreal feeling to the viewer.
Victoria’s most recent series includes extensions of the original image in which she further explores the energy of the study. The additional panels include the progression of the initial recognizable form to its final abstraction.
