Victor Goertz

Studio 316


Victor was born in British Columbia and has grown up with a deep connection to our diverse and awesome natural world. All the world’s a stage, and within the wild he finds a vast theatre. He hunts for visual stories along shorelines, rivers, lakes, and deep within ancient forests, looking for battles fought, lost or won, with a cast of rock, tree, water and earth. Through the painting process the dramatic tensions between these elements is re-interpreted using colour, texture, space, and illusion. And while these actors are not sentient, these tales become unavoidably personal and universally human.
