Description: Victoria Albuquerque is a female artist, maker and creator based on the south coast of England, near Lewes in East Sussex. Her 2-dimensional paintings are known for their structural formality and bold colours. For Victoria, life happens in a collection of small moments in life, collecting those moments tells a story.
This painting is from a collection of domestic based still life paintings. A family evening around the supper table, included a funny play on words between pair and pear This small moment fuelled a series of still life paintings based around fruit and painted on the same west facing window ledge and sill. This painting came alive after using the colour French Ultra Marine Blue in the mix for the sill in shadow.
