Biography

Victoria Horkan was born in South Yorkshire and is now living and working in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Her education began at Bretton Hall College before moving onto studying an MA at Huddersfield University.

Her studies into textile design meant she could explore with vigour the tangible tactile qualities using unconventional materials. Layering plaster with thick undiluted oil paint gave rich, painterly textures with a sense of fragility and evocativeness.

More recently the use of a raw, organic colour palette, depicting elements of movement is the artist’s upmost intention. Victoria Horkan's work celebrates the simplest of forms and delivers them into a contemporary age that conveys honesty and emotion. The relationship between her ability to manoeuvre paint and express fluidity and energy, is clever yet unintentional.

There’s an apparent flexibility in her creativity which is explorative and challenges the scale of how each form is depicted. Each one of Victoria Horkan's paintings takes her upon another journey, admitting that some of the textures created are accidental she develops these areas into the focal point for the next piece.
