In Defiance of Memory - Art by Victoria Borges

These illustrations by Victoria Borges use a variety of techniques, including graphite drawing, digital painting, and screen printing. Each piece also has its own unique style. The Beautiful and the Damned, about the decline of an outdoor mall, shows a woman carrying shopping bags surrounded by people walking dogs. Monty — “a project about what lies at the end of the road” — contains a man riding a bike along a snake-shaped winding road, with a flower-decorated skull at its end. I especially like the multiple layers of semi-transparent colors which Borges uses in this and some other pieces. Age of Anxiety is a portrait of a woman with Marie Antoinette-style hair and tattoos covering her body, while In Defiance of Memory has a woman with a stream of Polaroid pictures coming out of her mouth. Borges is from Virginia, U.S.
