Victoria Palermo


Tsuga 10-15

from Under the Influence

Victoria Palermo participated in the Under the Influence show in Fall 2016 at Village West.

Palermo's work has been shown in galleries and museums across the United States. She is also a long-time Lecturer of Art at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY.

She invites the viewer to dive into pools of color and light. Her current work incorporates the effect of light through colored translucency in multiple forms at various scales.

Combining materials of colored transparency with various media, Palermo makes architectonic compositions that imply studied determination one moment and happy coincidence the next. Free-standing constructions depend on the viewer's participation to complete the work—walking around the object leads to an elastic perception about its form and composition.

Her recent wall series -- Tsugas -- relates to the view outside a summer studio where water, seen beyond a stand of hemlock trees, reflects a myriad of colors from the surrounding landscape.
