ABOUT THE ARTIST

Vicky is a self-taught artist from Johannesburg, South Africa. A year ago, she gave up her apartment and has been travelling by car around Europe … which has made painting a lot more complicated, but she does it anyway. 


Her influences are surrealism and magic realism. 

"My art is very personal. Each painting is a visual metaphor of a strong emotion I feel  – as a woman in the world, a traveller and foreigner, a human being both intrigued and horrified by human behaviour. 

 

I explore themes of freedom and uncertainty, powerlessness and agency, love and loss, femininity and frustration, as well as human weakness - both mine and others'. 

My work can be humorous or serious or both. And each piece always starts the exact same way: a clear image in my head that I don’t fully understand at the tim,e and slowly but surely decipher during the painting process. In the beginning, it’s like working blind and I often have to repaint things because they just don’t feel “right”. 


One painting takes me an average of two years to complete."
