To celebrate the launch of the Rye Society of Artists’ (RSA) new website, and in advance of the RSA’s 70th anniversary summer show in 2021, Rye News continues to profile one of their artists each week – including links to their website and social media accounts so you can keep up-to-date on their activities. This week, the artist in focus is Vicki Atkinson
Victoria took her sculpture degree at City and Guilds of London Art School in the late 1980s where the emphasis was on a classical training in life drawing and sculpture.
Having completed several portraits, she was commissioned to produce a life size bronze statue of Rudyard Kipling for Burwash High Street in 2019.
Her more abstracted work captures the essence (or soul) of a person and although her figures are often static, their stillness has a presence.
