Focusing on posture, Vicki’s androgynous figures are captured at the edge of movement with a gentle reminiscent humour present in their body language.  

Monoliths and stone circles are evident, a sense of perpetual time and the feeling that something so still can evoke so much power. Although the poses of her sculptures are often static, their stillness has movement.  

Vicki took her sculpture degree at City and Guilds of London Art School in the late 1980s where the emphasis was on a classical training in life drawing and sculpture.  Everyday observations of human nature and an interest in mythology are the starting blocks for her work and her sculptures often represent opposites – good and bad, light and dark, angels and minotaurs!

The figures and faces are composed, timeless, part of a group and yet distant, as if they are hiding behind a persona like an actor on stage.
