LEFTY OUT THERE
There are no secrets in Lefty’s linework. It doesn’t take more than the mind’s eye to interpret squiggles or to search for what lies beneath the seemingly endless spaces in between. There is only the present consciousness and the planes of existence laid out before those viewing lines in any current space. Though they mostly seem two-dimensional, the shapes burst off of their surface, becoming physical and tangible to the dedicated observer. They entice and inspire while remaining dark and enigmatic. Like a daydream laced with unfamiliar and eerie qualities, the works exist to enter the microcosm in the folds of our brain--a treasure chest waiting to be opened. Lefty’s purpose is to pick the lock.
We are constantly questioning the construction of reality… A child’s sense of wonder and imagination is in all of us-- but far too often it is hidden. While at first glance Vika’s work seems to be a moment captured in time, something far deeper prevails. It’s a glimpse into the soul for both subject and creator. It’s the love in the energy of a moment. It’s the stir of chaos in the calm with waves of energy crashing and affecting every bit of stardust that forms our natural world. It enables our inner child to explore. Perhaps this is our reality… and the answer is an evolving mystery, yet Vika constantly paints a window into the realm of endless possibility.
