Victoria Mardon is an emerging abstract artist living and working in Exeter, Devon. Using acrylic on canvas, she creates precise and complex chromatic, hard-edged, geometrical paintings.
Mardon studied Graphic Design at Bath Spa University and graduated in 2000. Although she never followed a career in Graphic Design, the experience shaped her painting style.
Op Art, Colour Theory and Pattern Design are strong influences in her practice. Together with artists Bridget Riley, Carlos Cruz-Diez and Sarah Morris.
Mardon had a two-person show at the Brownsword Hepworth Gallery in Chelsea, London, in 2021. She also had paintings longlisted for the Jacksons Painting Prize and was selected for the RWA Open Exhibition.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
In these works, I am also using the push and pull effect of the warm vs cool colours to create the illusion of depth whilst using hues of that same tonal value to create a visual vibration.
