Victoria Rose Martin: Beasties
December 5 - 29, 2013
At first glance when you take a look at Victoria Rose Martin's ceramic sculpture, there is something so innocent, yet an undercurrent of mischief appears just beneath the surface. From a technical standpoint, she definitely has some great skills, and is not afraid to architecturally rearrange the human anatomy, or balance an animal or two on what appears to be a willing victim.
Victoria's sculpting is equally matched by her illustration ability. She takes delight in teasing the viewer with little stories about to be told. If you listen carefully to each piece, it just might talk to you!
