Victoria Atkinson MRSS
Focusing on posture, Vicki’s androgynous figures are captured at the edge of movement with a gentle reminiscent humour present in their body language.
Monoliths and stone circles are evident, a sense of perpetual time and the feeling that something so still can evoke so much power. The figures and faces are composed, timeless, part of a group and yet distant, as if they are hiding behind a persona like an actor on stage.
Vicki took her sculpture degree at City and Guilds of London Art School in the late 1980s where the emphasis was on a classical training in life drawing and sculpture. She has completed several commissioned bronze portraits.
