Florida based sculptor Enigmachick A.K.A. Victoria Milne uses sculpting to explore ideas, emotions, perceptions, and observations using a variety of materials and formats. Her work and inspiration vary from spontaneous creations where she lets the shapes and textures of objects around her lead her, to designs intended to portray something specific. Largely self-taught, she works mostly in metal, often incorporating found objects, stone, glass, wood or whatever catches her eye, either as the point of departure or as an accent.
Throughout her life she enjoyed making and fixing things. Writing was her outlet for self-expression but when she took a welding class that she found the perfect medium with which to satisfy her need to use her hands and the desire to express both her inner world and external observations. A strong interest in contrast and fluidity is evident in her work. Using hard, sharp materials she creates soft, curvaceous abstract forms such as in her work with jagged metals, nails and fish hooks from which come waves, flowers or concepts of identity and personality.
Since taking a metal sculpting class at the Silvermine Arts Guild, she has completed three residencies at the Steel Yard in Providence, RI, where she earned a merit award in 2017, was juried into the 32nd and 33rd All Florida Exhibit at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Meyers, FL, two Catherine Lorillard Wolfe shows in New York, multiple shows at the ArtsXchange in St. Petersburg, FL and non-juried shows in Connecticut and Rhode Island. She has also worked as a fabrication assistant for Studio Boro's Studio 80 in Connecticut. She has several pieces in private collections in Berlin, New York and Florida.
