About the artist

Dr. Victoria King is a painter, sculptor, photographer, essayist, poet, and passionate
gardener who emigrated from America to England in 1972 to study art and
philosophy. She was a senior university lecturer in Fine Art and has exhibited her
artwork extensively internationally in 15 solo exhibitions and many group shows over
the past 40 years. In 2005, she was honoured with a curated 30-year retrospective of
her paintings in an Australian museum, and Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery held
a 40-year solo retrospective of 150 of her paintings and sculptures in 2021 – 2022.
She has spent extensive periods of time working with Aboriginal women artists and
received a PhD for her thesis ‘Art of Place and Displacement: Embodied Perception
and the Haptic Ground’. Her artwork and writing are published in many books and
international journals.

“My paintings are celebrations of the extraordinary life force in nature and the power
of colour at its most abstract to communicate space and emotion. They are inspired
by glimpses of unexpected beauty: the juxtaposition of vibrant and subtle colours
and forms of flowers, of reflections in water, vistas within vistas, harmony
spontaneously self-sown rather than imposed. Just as seeds take time to germinate
and flower, so, too, do my paintings. With persistent nurturing, deep attention and
often outrageous risk-taking, surfaces often take years to build up until a painting
resonates with an embodied experience of perception and being-in-place. My hope
is that they will convey to the viewer a meditative sense of stillness, presence and
joy.”
