The “untitled rectangle” series is the result of Victoria’s recent two-month station as an Artist-in-Residence at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, CA. During her time at Kala, she learned the process of hand silkscreen printing with water based inks. She pushed the medium by layering simple designs and multiple, complex sheets of color. This series is one of her layering processes in which nine colors were screened atop one another to create dimensionality and depth of field, the surprising result being optical illusion and variance that makes this small edition series wobble and vibrate.
