Blind – A sixth Sense art exhibition
Posted on: Thursday 18 January 2018
We’re pleased to share details of an exhibition that’s taking place in February showcasing the sculptures of a visually impaired artist.
Victoria Claire is a Kent-based artist, specialising in contemporary sculpture carved from wood. She has RP but she hasn’t let this hold her back; her studio has been adapted for her needs and she’s been sculpting for 21 years now.
Born in 1975, Victoria Claire always showed much promise as an artist; after studying for her GCSEs and A Levels she continued on her education at art college studying graphic design. Later she was accepted at Staffordshire University to study figurative sculpture. Due to Victoria’s loss of vision, she felt she had to leave university. After much support from her parents and Kent Association for the Blind, she began to sculpt again.
Her latest collection of six sculpted pieces follows the theme of the senses. This is an opportunity to have an experience unlike any other visual arts exhibit; set in an extremely unusual environment to evoke the senses and have a truly extraordinary experience.
The exhibition Blind – a sixth sense, has been inspired by Victoria’s experience. It consists of six sculptures, the theme of each piece represents the five senses, sight, sound, smell, taste and touch, the sixth piece represents Victoria’s experience of a sixth sense. this for her relates to acceptance, trust and a connection to her spirit.
Exhibition date: 6th – 18th February 2018
Gallery: Beach Creative, Beach St, Herne Bay, Kent, CT6 5PT
