                     "Please Stay!!" by Vikki Hastings

 

 

 

............. BY THE SUPERB ARTIST VIKKI HASTINGS !!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 Vikki Hastings, from Ayrshire, graduated from the Edinburgh College of Art in 2011 with a BA (hons) degree in drawing and painting, prior to this, she studied at the Reid Kerr College, Paisley, where she graduated with an HNC in Environmental Fine Art.

Vikki currently works full-time from her own studio in Kilmarnock as she religiously creates a constant flow of fresh paintings.  Armed with an obsession of fairy tale, in all its forms. Vikki attempts to create artworks that fall into the area between story-telling and escapism.  Her work is a constant interrogation of humanity and allows her the artistic space to confront her own 'poisoned apple' and her inability to escape falling victim to human nature.  Art is escapist and escapism is inescapable.

With an array of Exhibitions under her wing (Moray Art Centre, Inverness; Chelsea Old Town Hall, London; Edinburgh College Of Art, The Wellington Art Gallery, Kilmarnock; Annick Art Gallery, Stewarton; The Charleston, Kilmarnock; North Beach Hotel, Prestwick) Vikki likes to ensure that her artwork has a continuous audience. Vikki, who is currently sitting at first place in the artgallery.co.uk's 'Artist Of The Year' competition is set to promote her artwork once again at 'The Art Gallery', London, in December this year.

"After Embracing Philogyny, I Took Off My Clothes And Forgot How To Drive"



Although seemingly derogatory, the intention of my newest painting is to celebrate humanity – both male and female.
The balance of subject matter leans toward women, because naturally, stripped down to the basic foundations, males are visual and women are an aesthetic.
There is a stigma attached to ‘surfacing’ a person – a superficiality that we are all guilty of, and like evolved magpies our humanity and basic instinct directs us on an unspoken quest for magnificence, whether we find it in film, song, a work of art, a man or a woman.

The work is not intended to comment on the ‘objectification of women’ but instead to imply that women, all women (you, me and her) are naturally beautiful.

As an educated society, we strive on our intelligence and wave our intellectual sword in the direction of others, yet we surprise ourselves when we fall victim to our natural, animalistic qualities. Competition amongst males and females has always provoked my interest, and the artwork, I believe, informs this.

Interestingly, Microsoft Word doesn’t recognise the word ‘philogyny’, and it was also a difficult word to discover on the internet.

Philogyny: The love and fondness of women.

I struggle with my own humanity daily, therefore referencing the natural, and unavoidable attitudes of people in art, allows me to continually approach, and ultimately embrace a subject that I can’t help but be uncomfortable with.

 

 

Loosely based on the subject of fairy tale and born from an obsession with Disney’s, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”, my work explores a world which lacks in ‘happily ever afters’ as well as the escapism implied by such stories.  Part of my fascination with this particular fairy tale was the idea of even a ‘completely good’ human being falling victim to temptation.  My paintings make a comment on how/why we choose to take ‘just one bite’ from our own poisonous apples, despite the threat of consequence.  My interest in the character of Snow White, specifically when I was younger, was that she existed in the stories as a perfectly good human being, however as we mature we realise that there is no such thing as complete good or complete evil and that all of us can in fact, identify with both ‘Snow White’ and ‘The Wicked Stepmother’.  My paintings tell the story of an alternate world and stems from my interest in, not so much a perfect, happily ever after world, but just a differing one.
As part of my research for this body of work, I studied the original Hans Christian Andersen and Charles Perrault tales and without ignoring my long term relationship with Walt Disney’s more prettified versions, I allowed my work to fall somewhere in between.  I attempt to depict a visual that I consider to be beautiful then consciously flaw it – this method can be found in the ‘broken paintings’ such as, “Just One Bite And All Of Your Dreams Will Come True” and, “There’s No Such Thing As Snow White.”   Alongside this, I also choose to include areas of complete darkness within my paintings to heighten the sense of something tainted and the idea of the fear of the unknown.  I find it to be important for fairy tales to create a balanced description of good and evil (Snow White and the Wicked Stepmother) and my intention was for my work to have a similar balance.
The stories themselves encourage escape.  We use them for problem solving.  The moment you find yourself asking, ‘What if?” is a means of escape.  What if my Buzz Lightyear really did come alive the moment I stepped out of my bedroom?  What if my mobile phone really was a transformer?  What if that man that I met really was my Prince Charming?  Escapism, positive or negative is in itself, inescapable and I believe my work provides me with a means to do so, and as an ornament in a harsh reality there will be times where we cannot help but bite from our own poisoned apples and face the consequences of such an action.  The world is an offering of temptation and want, and at times we will fall victim to our human nature.  I find this to be unsettling and my paintings offer me a way of dealing with my own ‘apple’ by repeatedly confronting it.  By converting something considered negative in a beautiful light, I am changing the way I view my own temptations, bad decisions and overall naivety.  

 

"Another Kind of Love"

 

 

The way in which two or more concepts, objects, or people are connected, or the state of being connected.  
Recently my practice has been concerned with highlighting the lack of perfection in a society that believes in the elusive ‘happily ever after’ concept.  Fairy tale describes to us, a happiness that is completely dependent on the existence of Prince Charming.  It is this man that you will fall head over heels in love with as he rescues you from a fire-breathing dragon, whisks you off your feet onto his beautiful white horse and makes you his Princess in an enchanted kingdom.  However, our individuality hinders us in any relationship and perhaps human beings, as unromantic as it may seem, were designed to survive solo?  Love can be short-lived - a mere interruption.  
It is this ‘interruption’ which provides the basis for my most recent series of paintings.  The idea of being completely connected to and surrounded by another human being.  A pairing that allows you to fall victim to your own human nature, where you look into your ‘magic mirror’ and identify yourself as both a ‘goodie’ and a ‘baddie’.  Flaw and corruption is in our make-up and we are as destructive as we are constructive, therefore we build relationships yet destroy them for impact, effect or response.  My paintings primarily describe the positives, the idea of an intense feeling of deep affection for another individual, an exploration/experience of another person.  I purposely use colour to represent both the idea of beauty and threat as well as peace and hardships.  Love and hate play an unjustified role in our everyday thoughts and despite them being of opposite extremes it is our immaturity and naivety that forces us to attach these two words/feelings so closely to people/objects/places/experiences.
We naively embrace the idea of ‘forever and ever’ in relation to a temporary affair.  Love is impermanent, yet our expectations are not.  My work captures a moment where love could exist; a situation that is easily relatable.
  Relationships are fragile, delicate things and this softness is magnified in the gentility of each finished canvas.  Despite the description of an intimacy that exists only in the presence of two people, my work is also a comment on what is not portrayed to the viewer.  
    A secret.
