Victoria Wylie

Victoria makes contemporary abstract landscape paintings from her home studio in Angus. Her paintings are a celebration of the wilderness of Scotland’s land and sea – they are bold, striking and atmospheric.

Horizon lines fascinate her. This comes from growing up close to the North Yorkshire Moors – the vast stretches of openness still inform her work in many ways. Her paintings respond to the changing elements, light and the rhythm of the landscape as she explores the visual tensions that arise when sky meets sea meets land. The paintings are memories of these moments and while each artwork is a reflection from a particular place, they encompass numerous experiences – each painting lends a fragment of itself to the next.

Victoria’s making process involves observing her surrounding environment – she seeks out unexpected colour, shapes and patterns in landforms, ancient rock formations, plants and stones, inviting viewers to look again at their environment.

She captures energy through playful mark-making and enjoys the serendipity that occurs as a result. Her connection with, and respect for the natural world, is central to every mark she makes. This connection is something she hopes to share with others through her paintings.

Victoria graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art + Design with a BDes (Hons) in Constructed Textiles, specialising in Gobelin tapestry weaving. She went on to complete a Master of Fine Art.

She has exhibited throughout Scotland and the rest of the UK and has artworks in private collections across the world
