Painting & Printmaking School of Fine Art

Victor Flavell

Through my work, I am exploring my relationship to the people around me and my surroundings, solidifying the presence of the artist, asking questions of the painted moment, and exploring doubt and the unknown.

There is a desire to communicate the fragmentary nature of experience, to allow for contradictions, to take and step back and realise that disorder, the unknown, and chance are far more common than tidy narratives. Some things may come into our life with a past or future that is unknown to us, but they inhabit our present for an instant, arriving and departing with no explanation. The goal is to illustrate that although narratives occur, they are never singular.

We have a tendency to translate unrelated fragments into a singular narrative which is to convey our own story, in an effort to understand the world around us.  I would like to accept the futility of trying to understand ‘the meaning of things’, to find solace in the idea that some things cannot be understood, explained, or related. In a moment where knowledge, understanding and meaning seem paramount, we forget to appreciate sensitivity, instinct and experience.
