Victoria Walton (b. 1994 VA) is a multidisciplinary artist living in Baltimore. They have an MFA in Ceramic Art from the NYSCC at Alfred University and a BFA with a focus in ceramics from Towson University. Victoria explores the wonder and complexity of Black identity, creating sculpture and video works that center the narratives of women and gender-expansive people. Walton draws from their own life: reflecting on the intersection of her identities, their chronic illness/disability, and background of medical and emotional trauma. She further investigates the impact that historic societal factors and personal experiences have on the individual and the Black community. Their work illustrates the conditions that reveal how our environment builds and breaks us down simultaneously, making multi-layered connections between clay and the body.
