- "I Came to know the work of Elsa Victoria exhibit her painting When She Ways to the Future 3 at The von Liebig Art Center in Naples, Florida. At first glance I Noticed her bold use of bright colors in large flat expanse. Then my Attention Focus on the texturing and the patterned lines That move along the edges. Her abstract paintings Are exuberant. Their origins ..... Are Not Immediately Evident Victoria's art stems from a long tradition of Spanish painters and is Firmly grounded in Spanish culture. With her paintings she Speaks to the future. As I Contemplate her work, I see links in the past and origins. Victorias paints with the Same range of colors as Francisco Goya, she Entertains the fantasy of Salvador Dalí and with her the brush she Recalls somber, sinuous line of El Greco .... Past, Present and Future Are layered on Victoria 'canvases. They echo in her colors, textures and patterns geometeric. "Jack O'Brien, Curator, The von Liebig Art Center, Naples, FL USA
