Artist Statement

What do the Sphinx from the Vienna Belvedere and a paper airplane have in common? This is flight. Viennese architecture is a flight into the unknown…. And on the wings of a paper airplane, the story of that beautiful fairy tale that your life can turn into is written in transparent ink...
A series of paintings "Myths" near of kin travel sketches of a happy journey through magical worlds, where the bright sun always shines, and sphinxes, angels and centaurs walk along the golden beaches. They create a new mood in the interior: the details of painting and graphics resonate with the real space, charging it with the solar energy of the artist's imagination. Fantastic images are set off by an academic drawing and colossal artistic erudition of Victoria. Her signature style is a mix of classicism, art deco, pop art and suprematism.
