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.
"I’m always intrigued by shadows or ghost images of a person. When you close your eyes and think of someone, facial features often don’t emerge but their ‘essence/soul’ does."
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.
Vicki’s work has been exhibited in London and the British Isles, as well as further overseas. Group exhibitions include: Royal Academy Summer Exhibition; Society of Portrait Sculptors FACE; Affordable Art Fair, Battersea; Royal Society of British Artists, Mall Galleries; The Towner, Eastbourne; Royal West of England Academy, Bristol.
