Bright, gestural oil paintings reveal a fascination with emotional states, with the help of unwitting accomplices captured from the TV screen. Subtle in scale: a whisper in the ear rather than a shout across the room, their textured surfaces contain intriguing hints of the depths of emotion below.
Viv worked as a graphic designer before returning to education where she combined photoshop, traditional photography techniques and drawing to inspire her gestural hand done paintings. She has a 2:1 BA in Art and Design (Bradford) , MA in Art (Leeds) and PGCE in post-compulsory education. Her most recent group exhibition was FLUX at the Royal College of Art in December 2015.
