Victoria Sauer graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with her BFA in Painting and Drawing in the spring of 2020. While still experimenting with many mediums, she often approaches her painting practice in a hyperrealistic manner—heavily influenced by photorealism and surrealism. Working from photographs she takes herself, Victoria uses oil paint to represent subjects that are familiar, yet slightly otherworldly, as she navigates the space between conscious and subconscious. Victoria’s work has been shown nationally from Colorado to Georgia to New York City. She recently spent a year living on-site as the Residency Fellow for Chattanooga arts organization Stove Works and currently serves as a curator of online arts collective and residency, Mineral House Media.
