About

victoriaevansartist@gmail.com

Victoria Evans is a contemporary multi-media artist who lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. Her background is in narrative film and television, and she graduated with a Masters Degree (Distinction) in Sculpture and Environmental Art at Glasgow School of Art in 2015.  She works across a shifting combination of time-based media, stand-alone objects and site-responsive installation and her approach to exhibition combines traditions of psychological absorption and physical immersion.

Victoria is engaged with the tension between lived experience and abstraction, exploring ideas of time, location and reality and how the apparatuses of measurement and representation influence perception. Her work is inspired by science, philosophy, politics and literature and the interplay of sculptural, painterly and cinematic concerns is central to her practice.
