Biography

Victoria Wylie creates abstract landscape paintings from her studio in Angus. She graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art wiht a BDes in Constructed Textiles going on to be awarded a Masters of Fine Art.

She has a deep love of horizon lines found in remote and open spaces, and seeks out colour, shapes and patterns in the places she visits. Her work responds to the changing elements and the rhythm of the landscape and she explores the visual tensions that arise when sky meets sea meets land. She translates these experiences into bold, stricking and abstract paintings. Each artwork is a reflection on a particular place - a memory of a moment. 

Victoria predominantly uses acrylic paints to make her paintings. She uses a mixture of other media such as ink, pencils and oil pastels to create the energy and variety of marks she strives for. She enjoys experimenting with textures, opacity, patterns and colour using processes such as layering, scraping, distressing and re-painting to achieve the desired effect.
