Painter, sculptor, photographer, essayist, and poet Victoria King emigrated to England from America in 1972 to study art and philosophy, and became a senior university lecturer and a passionate gardener. In late December 1993, she moved to Australia where she lived for twelve years on three acres in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, followed by thirteen years at ‘Blackstone’, a remote 55-acre waterfront property on Bruny Island in Tasmania. At the request of Stolen Generation Aboriginal artist Barbara Weir, she spent extensive periods of time volunteering at the Aboriginal outstation of Utopia recording Barbara's stories and those of twelve other Aboriginal women. In 2018, after the unexpected end of her 25-year marriage, she left Australia and returned to England to live near her son and granddaughter. Her artwork bridges territory between figuration and abstraction, and has been shown in over 50 exhibitions, including 14 solo shows. In 2000, a curated solo travelling retrospective of 25-years of her artwork was held in Australia, and in 2021 and 2022, a solo 40-year retrospective of her artwork was shown in England. She has a 1st Class Honours BA and MA in Fine Art and received a PhD for her thesis Art of Place and Displacement: Embodied Perception and the Haptic Ground from the University of New South Wales in Sydney. Her essays, poetry, and artwork have been published in many books and international journals.
