“While some may say I am biased as Victor’s wife, I have lived with his art for 30 years, never tiring of it. His work breathes and lives on our walls, each day fresh and new, bringing something different to my life every time I look at a piece. Sometimes his work is painful to look at because I experience what is happening in the image, e.g. The Sin Eater (2017). With another piece, I can hear drums beating as feet pound the earth in dance while dust rises all around me in the dusk of a warm summer desert night, e.g., Deer Dancer I (1993-94). I never met Victor’s Mom, but know her well from a piece he painted for her early in his painting career. Each time I look at Flowers for Mae (1968-72), I know her gentleness, her love of flowers, and the love her son had for her. What more can we ask of art, but a living experience that changes each day depending on what we bring to it?” Susanne Reed, educator, photographer, writer
