Victoria V statement:
I always liked to draw and to paint. As a child, when I was spending my time in the naughty corner, I sneaked pencils and drew on the wall, on the door and on my grandma’s ironing board; when my friends wouldn’t play with me, because I was “weird” as of their opinion, I took my pencils and paints and created my own worlds and stories and put them to the paper.
I’ve been collecting my techniques and my teachers as a puzzle, which was resonating with me on different stages of my development; I adore unpredictability of watercolours, texture of oil; I love experimenting with acrylics, inks and digital as well as with other materials like wires, threads and papier-mâché; I adore the process of creation – just because #Ilovetocreate
For me, creating means breathing.
This is a real ritual of diving into my own worlds and parallel realities. For me, creating means freedom. This is a ritual of traveling through the Universe and of feeling the gods watching us. For me, creating means interaction of energies and subtle matters, meanings, symbols, colours, pigments, lines and canvases. It means fusion of ancient, of the present and of the future, it means combination of higher materials and inner demons. For me, creating means my way of touching mystery and magic, that we often overlook in our daily lives.
