About the speaker

Victoria Morton is an artist and a musician based in Glasgow. She also has a studio in Italy. Her practice encompasses painting, sculptural assemblages, found objects, photography, and sound. Her recent paintings vary in scale, opacity, colour and spatiality. Influenced by musical composition, colour perception, everyday life alongside personal narratives, historical and cultural references, Morton’s works explore a continuously unfolding visual, spatial and psychological experience.

Victoria studied painting at Glasgow School of Art followed by a Masters Degree in Fine Art. She has shown her work in solo and group exhibitions across the UK and internationally.

She was a founding member of the art/performance groups Elizabeth Go and Muscles of Joy. She is currently a member of the band Sound of Yell and has recently recorded and performed with Amor and Rev Magnetic.

Looking at examples of paintings and installations from the past up to now Victoria will discuss the development of her practice and outline key ideas. She will also talk about her involvement with music and how these parallel activities influence and inform each other.
