HAPPY CITY

HAPPY CITY

Piece description from the artist

In reviewing Victorios’s work for this writing, I found two distinct groups of paintings which I define as City Dreamscapes and Untamed Landscapes. Each group has two main subjects which are bicycles and ladders. Victorios has recently introduced a third subject; her hot air balloons will be discussed later. The bicycles are metaphors for her own life’s journey and they are also her metaphor for each one of us as we ourselves journey forward on similar yet individual paths. As anyone who has ridden a bicycle knows, skill and balance are required to move forward. Courage is a prerequisite.

We use ladders to reach high places. Victorios includes ladders in her paintings to symbolize an assistance or support to the individual. They allow for travel upward, bridge horizontal gaps and at times offer protection by serving as a railing or fence. Most of all, ladders enable her travelers to move to a higher level. In the act of viewing and considering her paintings, we follow Victorios on her life’s journey and reflect upon our own. Her optimism is clearly visible in her ladders, which are present in every painting and available to assist any brave-hearted traveler.
