About the Artist
Victoria Edwards is a multi-discipinary fine artist, working primarily with intaglio printmaking. Her work has its root in poetry, myth and folk-tale exploring themes of violence, power and sexuality from an explicitly female perspective. Working on copper plates using sugar-lift aquatint, dry point and etching, the plates are repeatedly bitten in acid to achieve deep blacks and open bite.
Her interest is in transience rather than repetition, thus the pieces are often unique or in a very limited edition.
She works across a range of mediums including etching, painting, writing, making small objects and artists' books. Work is held in the V&A, Slade School, various national and international private collections.
