Victoria teaches across a range of disciplines for our fine art team. With particular expertise in video and installation art, her practice-led research has led to art exhibitions, residencies and commissions with galleries and museums internationally. In recognition of her contributions to teaching, Victoria is a National Teaching Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Victoria’s practice-led research engages with the materiality of landscape in a way that revisions female subjectivity. She was awarded sabbatical leave from UCLan in 2015 to develop this ongoing enquiry, which she is now investigating at PhD level at Sheffield Hallam University. Her artworks have been exhibited in solo exhibitions and group shows in Europe and America, with the support of Arts Council England grants. She has also undertaken residencies and developed commissioned projects with a variety of partners. More information about Victoria’s art practice and research can be found at: victorialucas.co.uk. Victoria currently teaches undergraduates studying on the BA (Hons) Fine Art programme. Her roles include Academic Tutor, Third Year Tutor and Module leader.
