BIOGRAPHY

 

Ted Victoria is primarily known for mixed media wall pieces that incorporate the use of a lens light projection system similar to the camera obscura. Victoria incases objects within a box, the reflection of which is projected onto the gallery wall or the glass frame to create "live" images. Victoria received his MFA from Rutgers University in 1970. His work is represented in the collections of Fonds National d'Art Contemporain, France; Indianapolis Museum of Art; the Forbes Collection, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Dallas; Museo Tamayo, Mexico City; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Tasa Collection, Munich; and many others.
