Award winning artist Victoria Rance, looks at the connections, real and mythological, between humans, animals and nature. She creates tiny detailed pewter sculptures and sets them in tableaux scenes. The mythological character ‘Loki’ is a key figure in this group. For Rance, Loki is a mischievous shape-shifting figure, part human, part hare. She sees her motifs as a way of honouring our precious declining wildlife, as well as being a helpful counter to the conflicted and binary splitting of current world views. Complicating the binary by introducing a third element these talismanic objects create the sense of a positive cycle, with rebirth, fertility, and play embraced within them.
