I am attracted to images that are mysterious, and that may be interpreted in different ways. A composition begins as a response to the materials before me; primarily small shapes cut from books, magazines and other photographic sources. I place myself in an atmosphere of ideas, gleaned mostly from reading, but also from music, film, visual art, and occasionally the real world. Then I let the process happen, trusting that “accident favors the prepared mind. [More]

Victoria Skinner’s collages are glowing and mysterious, like bejeweled shadow boxes replete with fantastic and bizarre treasures…At the heart of her collages is this compelling visual metamorphosis. It’s a change from a recognizable place recorded by photography to a unique place suffused with fantasy and dream. …The transformation she works on these bits of other things becomes a metaphor for the alchemy- and risks- of art itself.”

–Elisa Turner – "New Art Examiner" [More]
