Victoria began her career as a filmmaker and then transitioned to painting and photography and it is in this marriage of cinematic movement and evocative stillness that her work resides. “Interludes” and “Rituals” are like stripping common objects of their intended and agreed upon meaning, she captures the representations of floating signifiers, and dislodges them from what is familiar and comforting, renames them in a nebula of space and light, and allows a new alchemy to give rise to new meanings.
"I am intrigued with pushing the comfort level of the way we trust our perceptions. The constant in my work is my affinity for light and it’s ability to alter the context and content of what is seen.
Taking the initial photograph is a way to document the reality of an object that has an intrinsic resonance to it and inspires me to delete and imbue its presence with alternate viewpoints.
Working within the chemistry of the camera and computer, I manipulate the image to present a new truth. Giving and withholding information at the same time encourages the viewers of these works to operate out of their own intuition
rather than accept a programmed response."
