"My work explores the world around me, my relationship to my body and nature. I am interested in the dialogue of beauty and repulsion"
Mixed media artist Victoria Welling grew up in Texas and Ohio, and received her BFA in painting at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY in 2006. Welling explores issues of gender and gender-assigned work, among other themes. She is intrigued by the masculine and feminine in work and craft, which she describes as a personal love for “the sewing kit and the toolbox.” She currently lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.
