About this Item

South African 1964-
Landscape with Figural Procession
pastel and needlepoint on paper
62 by 144cm excluding frame


Running above the desolate landscape one can view the procession of figures made with small pin holes.

Diane Victor is an artist of uncompromising directness. Her pastel, charcoal and linocut works typically confront viewers with a highly charged, often fraught psychological landscape. ‘I cannot just leave issues that anger or upset me alone,’ she once observed in an interview. ‘They are still part of my range of choices and an element of my social conscience – that want almost to rattle people or make them take one step beyond their comfort zone.’1
