Victoria Palermo’s current work incorporates the effect of light through colored translucency in multiple forms at various scales. Free-standing constructions depend on the viewer’s participation to complete the work—walking around the object leads to an elastic perception about its form and composition.
She exhibits two- and three-dimensional work in art venues across the country with reviews in national media, including Sculpture magazine and the New York Times, and has received awards from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, and has been an artist in residence at Yaddo. Sculpture grounds at The Fields at Art Omi in Ghent NY, Chesterwood in Stockbridge MA, and Salem Art Works in Salem NY, have sited Palermo’s outdoor work. Site-specific public works include Up and Down for Albany International Airport, a bus shelter sponsored by MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA, and Camp Iris for the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls NY. Solo and two-person exhibits include several one-person shows at John Davis Gallery in Hudson, NY; Flomation at Williams College Museum; Nature Park at Kidspace, MASS MoCA; Procrustes at Collarworks, Troy; Flubber at Conduit Gallery in Dallas, Texas; two solo exhibitions at the Courthouse Gallery in Lake George, NY; and an early exhibition in Marseille, France. Victoria earned her BS in Art from Skidmore College and an MFA from Bennington College, VT.
