Victoria Reynolds

p o p p Los Angeles-based artist Victoria Reynolds' paintings of raw flesh, often set in ornate, rococo- or baroque-style frames, are unabashedly sumptuous and sensual (other media include digital imagery, drawing, sculpture, and music). Her work refers to the Venetian art of painting flesh, Dutch vanitas, kitchen and butcher stall scenes, divine sacrifice, and society's use and sacrifice of animals. Victoria Reynolds exhibits her work internationally, and her work is represented in numerous collections. Recent solo exhibitions include Drawn and Rendered at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, California; Carne Vale at Blue Star Arts Complex in San Antonio, Texas; and Rare and Well-Done (Blodig och Genomstekt) at Galleri Ahnlund, UmeÃ¥, Sweden. Reynolds will discuss her works from the past ten years, highlighting those in Nine Lives. (via Hammer) o p

  1. Victoria,
    Thank you for sharing your magnificent paintings! I would like to hang one on my wall, and almost did via a gallery in California, but I was unemployed at the time. Someday. For now, I’m a guest to their images.

    Can I ask you what you’re trying to say with your art?

  3. Hello Victoria,

    I am a graduate student in painting at Georgia Southern University and am painting zoomed-in roadkill paintings as metaphors for human experience using glazing techniques.

    I was delighted to discover you in “Nature Morte”. I see that your work is informed by Venetian painting of flesh and Dutch vanitas and am interested in furthering my research. Would you be able to recommend some painters that you have been influenced by that might help me along my way?
