Personal Statement:


Victoria Kiff

Fine Artist, Rye, East Sussex, UK



My artworks seek to create a balance between memory and observation. They are an outward response to the inner world of perception of which colour and form are a harmonious placing of the paint to its surface.


The images are often best described as figure landscapes and the two themes intertwine.


I find inspiration from literature, stories and film. These form the basis of my collective imagery alongside my personal journals. Writing has an important role in my art practice, and the art works are created in series, placed within a corresponding narrative.


When sourcing my subject, I will search for the strange and unusual, the dramatic and thought provoking, as in a lost transcript.


A human figure or figures as the focal object, can be both real or imagined. The elements of which depict the functional and psychological aspects.


Since the early years of my life, painting has enabled me to have a voice and provide a place of protection and emotional growth.


Aside from introspection, there are many perspectives to a tactile painterly surface, as an outward response to nature, it is continually re-inventing the senses within itself.


Written Observations:


‘Victoria Kiff combines classical figuration and abstraction to create rich textures in painting with complex layers of line and colour. Her paintings are sensitive explorations of the human figure in relation to landscape and have been exhibited widely in London. Victoria’s latest collection of oil paintings can be seen at JP Art Gallery, 18 Battersea Rise, London SW11 1EE’  


‘The figures radiate a sense of loss but at the same time make us feel connected, they etch themselves inside us and stay there. Hers are exceptional pieces that will endure as they capture an inexplicable but understood universal truth’


‘Victoria Kiff combines figuration and abstraction to create richly sensitive images of such depth that they transcend time and permeate spiritual emotion. Connecting the human body to the sea and land through colour, line and instinct

The work expresses the need to communicate emotional and psychological conditions through formal and contradictory means, reflections and memories past, present and future form the images on sub-conscious levels.’  Someth1ng gallery London


‘The exhibition will include a new collection of artworks that corelate with waterways as fundamental to light, colour, emotion and the placement of figuration.

The artworks are often preoccupied with ‘The sense of self’, in many of its varied forms and fragile perspectives.’


Marshlands is Victoria Kiff’s fourth solo show in the gallery and as always it is a hugely anticipated exhibition.  Her work resonates with richness and power and entices the viewer to look, linger and question.  Marshlands will undoubtedly enhance Kiff’sgrowing reputation which has seen her firmly established as one of the most exciting young woman painters in the UK
