Victoria uses a foundation of drawing and painting to develop images onto various textile surfaces. Recent work has focused on the natural world of plants and flowers. Embracing the fluidity of nature and the femininity of flowers, she has created a collection of sensual images that capture the short life of a bloom, or indeed that of a woman in her ‘prime’. A delicate silk covered with the hibiscus flower print echoes this message of temporariness. Viewers are encouraged to walk through the material allowing it to cover their face and skin. Both the fabric & print are gradually eroded and eventually destroyed.
