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.
