A nomad who, by nature, has one foot in the West and another in the East, Victoria Renaux travels eventually brought her to the island of Bali. After two years living in the south of the island, she traveled to the less developed north where she introduced children in an orphanage in Singaraja to art, not by teaching them to paint in any particular style but by urging them to explore their own imaginations. The results were remarkable and although the budding young artists were indirectly influenced by their teachers art, the results of their artistic endeavors were highly individual.Light Dance
Victoria claims that her silk paintings are the direct extension of her meditation practice and, as a result, she has refused to sign them feeling they belong to a far greater collective consciousness. Her fluid, surrealistic images are dominated by the human face and body swirling in vivid colors. On some she has written rune-like imaginary inscriptions.
Her painting are, on one level, the spontaneous inner visions of an autodidact.
