Victoria Bartlett moulds paper and made and found materials to create images drawn from our surroundings and experience.
She is inspired by classical and relief sculpture and arts which for centuries have expressed wordless ideas and myths.
Interpreting form in both two and three dimensions, she uses surfaces which respond to shifting light and shadow revealing varied readings of the image and hidden tangible and illusory details.
She studied Painting and Sculpture at Camberwell School of Art and Reading University.
