Artist Statement: In my practice I investigate and explore a variety of strategies through materiality and paint in order to convey a personal interpretation of a particular subject matter through both representation and abstraction. My practice enables me to ponder, research and deconstruct a variety of subjects that has become personally important to me. My goal is to evoke some of the same feelings in the viewer that had initially inspired me to create the work. www.lorivictor.com
