Hepworth explores the process of painting through the use of paint in various textures and colours. The process of painting is what interests victoria hepworth primarily, losing all inhibitions, accidental spilling and dripping the paint, the amount of paint and the colour used can be controlled, unexpected marks created learning how to control and reapply. The accidental dripping paint creates diverse, extraordinary and attractive lines and shapes that together with the textures create a variety composition of landscapes, seascapes and waterscapes.
Victoria creates paintings that could be interpreted as abstract art that chooses to express herself through the paint using various texture and mark making. Adding and removing sections of each painting and enhancing each texture with each mark made.
The mediums used through out victoria's paintings are acrylics with acrylic mediums, watercolours, gouache and inks; the mediums are flexible in mixing and applying in layers. The paintings are aesthetically vulnerable to the spectator, sensitive and forceful. Victoria's intention is to allow the paint to be informal and vulnerable, this could be interpreted as many kinds of art from abstract, expressionistic to defective art.
The paintings take shape of suggestive landscapes from eliminating selected marks, throughout victoria's painting she has researched the artist hans hoffmann; in his paintings he has communication between recognisable image and the abstract shape using spontaneity and control.
