Victoria is equally mesmerised by the mundane and the magnificent. She is bewildered by the mystery we are forced to live with and be astonished by while carrying on with our daily lives.
Her work weaves together these ideas of balance and belonging. Guided by curiosity and awe; she considers possibilities through composition and creates space for serendipity through improvisation. She is very interested in the roots and roads that led us to where (and what) we are, as people, beings and particles. Lines, abstraction, geometry, poetry and a personal library of symbols are part of her vocabulary to create visual narratives many times over, in a variety of ways, to question their meaning and open venues for interpretation, sensibility and nuance.
In a world of algorithms, idealized standardization and bite-size format; the work yearns to hold space to allow the multitudes contained in oneself to wander and pay attention, and maybe find meaning in the unexpected, the minuscule or the familiar.
The creative process becomes an exercise akin to meditation or spiritual practice to anchor oneself in the present. By stepping in and out of herself, she gains perspective to better inhabit and understand the infinity of narratives possible.
Victoria is Brazilian by birth and a nomad at heart. She worked as a creative/art director for the advertising industry in São Paulo and London for a few years before deciding it was time for a change and moved to Spain in 2012. There she started her graphic design practice as well as devoting more time to her artwork.
