“Genesis Series” is a journey into Geometric Abstraction.
Typically, in the larger canvases there is a relationship between all the gems & their orbits, they are carefully measured & placed to “belong” to each other geometrically, yet there is one outlier that just doesn’t seem to “fit”. Victoria believes this is a translation of the way we as humans can always belong to one group yet can be un-relatable by/to others, by choice or not in some situations. The square canvas "sets of 2" showcase how using a palate-knife technique, the circles all look the same from the start, yet finish so deliciously different. Victoria translates this again from the human experience - we begin as newborns, a fresh canvas if you will, then by being painted with different life experiences we all end up magnificently different with so much to offer. The smaller pieces take you out landscaping, with careful yet messy exploration of the delightful colors of our beautiful Earth.
Victoria invites you to enjoy “Genesis Series”.
This piece was painted specifically for the Singapore American School International Fair celebrating the diversity of people coming together to honor each other. We are all painted in different colors, yet the paint & the brush is the same, we have our own individual wonderful traits, yet deep down, we are all the same. We only need to find love within ourselves & then everything else falls into place. Look closer, you will see the detail that inspires & motivates each of us, a hand, a heart, a lock, a tie, which color do you identify with?
Do you hold on?
Do you buckle up and hang on for the ride?
Do you envelope then lose yourself in love?
Do you kiss & tell?
There's a tiny thread holding us together, it's hard to see but it's oh, so strong
