Victoria Stanway

After completing art school many moons ago Victoria left her creative pursuits behind (reluctantly) to get a proper job. Years of passive consumerism began to take its toll. Instead of having a mental breakdown she decided to channel years of unresolved angst into a creative outlet and started painting mostly what was in her head. This consisted of imagined townscapes, based on memories of growing up in an impoverished northern milltown. Since then the themes and methods have evolved; ranging from expressionistic landscapes to the surreal suburbia. Victoria's most recent body of work has ventured into the figurative, exploring subjects such as domestic drudgery, urban alienation and the effect of lockdown during the pandemic.
