Emerging Artist Residency
Jeannie Thib Mentorship Residency Recipient
Victoria Day creates screenprints, murals, and drawings that examine themes of gender, self-indulgence, and mental health through an autobiographical lens. She is inspired by the duality of the internal – the mind, identity, thought – and the external – the body, society, and action. Her practice explores the fluctuating relationship between these elements through self-portraiture, bridging her interior landscape with her exterior form.
During the Jeannie Thib Mentorship Residency, Day will be combining her drawing and printmaking practices to produce a series of images passed through repeated digital and analog manipulations. She hopes that her experiments will lead to work that gives pause to the rapid image consumption of the times and will raise the question …what is this? …how was it made?
