Victor Goertz


A developed and accomplished British Columbian artist, Victor Goertz pictures his native land with subtle nuance and evocative color. A student of perception and vision, his works seek to understand the act of viewing as a subjective experience and the scientific study of the way in which the human mind perceives color more generally. His work is informed by graphic design and animation, strengths that are locatable to his bold contrast of color and the sense of movement found in each individual brush stroke. In his work it is not uncommon to encounter a shaped canvas that takes up abstract compositions, playing with the contour of form, the influence of color and the play of space, enchanted by the changing spectrum of our peripheral vision.
