Victoria guy was born and raised in Mississauga and grew up influenced by her parents love of books. She has had strong interest in drawing since a young age, and pursued art throughout high school, her passion leading her to enrolling in the Honorary Bachelors of Craft and Design specializing in glass making.
Victoria creates sculptures of the female torso in glass, using layers of opaque colours which she carves into to reveal the layers underneath. Through making these sculptures she is her identity and how that relates to her body image. Victoria sees her work as part of a conversation is she having with herself, trying to navigate these messages while exploring her identity after dealing with mental health issues throughout her life. By placing these individual sculptures together, they speak to the collective effect of these experiences and emotions, and how these small individual feelings play a larger role in developing on herself concept.
