Using drawing and video, Contemporary Northwest Art Awards winner Victoria Haven employs words and geometric spatial relationships to illustrate the fragmented bombardment of technology on the human psyche in the new millennium. With language and mixed media, she binds together two- and three-dimensional imagery to create elegant modernist objects that suggest unanswered questions. By using abstraction, shift perspectives, and intuitive process, her works explore phenomena of sensations, energy, and disconnected space. Her drawings reveal psychological and formal space. In Haven’s past work, she focused on built space, and elements of Northwest landscape.
Haven received a BFA degree from the University of Washington, Seattle and an MFA from Goldsmith College, University of London, United Kingdom. Her work has been exhibited at Seattle Art Museum; Drawing Room, London; Planthouse, New York; Frye Art Museum, Seattle; and Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, Oregon, among other venues. She has been included in numerous group exhibitions nationally and internationally. Haven has won many awards and her work is included in numerous public and private collections.
Join Haven and fellow CNAA artists Lead Pencil Studio on April 23 from 2:00-3:00 for a lively conversation with Bonnie Laing-Malcomson, Curator of Northwest Art and exhibition organizer.
