Victoria West

Vic West (1993) uppvuxen i Stockholm, studerar just nu på den Kungliga Danska Konstakademin i Köpenhamn som hon började på efter sina studier på Pernbys målarskola. Vic West is in the process of exploring painting as a time-based medium, experimenting with sound and digital manipulation. Vic uses this classic medium to work with the ideas of the future of experience. Just like text, image language like painting has adapted to every time in history. Just like binary code, which stays the same despite progress in computing technology. This image language connects human experience in the past and the future. Perhaps even past the point where it is unclear what or who is experiencing things, in a post-human scenario. Image language intuitively created as Vic works are, like in dreams, reaches into the unknown and the unsayable. Into an imaginary future, playing around with it, thinking with it. The results are unclear and up to interpretation, even to the creator. Like a dreamer wondering what their dreams mean. Vic West is a Swedish visual artist based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Their main mediums include oil painting and digital medias. They explore the concept of worlds; as psychological, physical, digital and socio-cultural spaces; and how they blend together. The border between the world inside the self and the world outside is at the center of all their work, as well as the difficulties of having a continuous self-image in the midst of constant fragmentation during every-day life.
