Victoria Verge -
Where Are You From?

Location: King's Point, NL

Mixed media visual artist Victoria Verge is pouring her own lived experiences into a new collection called Where Are You From? The series focuses on the lives of modern military families, and aims to shed light on the untold perspective of the children who often experience great transience. The nomadic lifestyle of a military family means children must regularly adapt to new places, people, and routines. Depending on the post, children live in fear for their deployed parent or parents safety (or life), and they’re forever faced with establishing new friendships with peers in each new place. Those relationships form the basis for the new works in progress, as Verge reconnects with people from her past to inform pieces that will plot out people’s various moves, juxtaposed with other thematic imagery.
