Victoria Hanlon graduated with a B.S in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University and a B.A in Painting from the Atlanta College of Art in Atlanta, Georgia. Primarily working with oils and linen, Hanlon continues to work with large scale pieces and creates different palettes and depth of layers to reflect her subjects, which has changed from architectural subjects to large succulent/plants to dairy cow compositions. Hanlon has participated in in group exhibitions across the country and her work is collected by collectors nationally, such as the Sunrise Bank of Atlanta and the Hammond Hanlon Camp LLC in San Diego, CA.
“I began working on compositions found at a nearby dairy farm several years ago. The dairy cows have proven to be rich subject matter as they can be broken down into individual organic shapes and colors, and yet form another image when viewed all together. Cows are very comfortable with proximity with one another as well as a stranger with a camera, creating a blanket of unique shapes of which to work. I have experimented with dimension, tonality, perspective and continue to find new discoveries.”- Hanlon
