about the art...
Inspired by the marks of time and traces of the ephemeral, Veronica’s muse ranges from images of dramatic winged figures, to large botanical impressions. Within her compositions, the image or impression of wings, feathers and flight reoccur as a metaphor for the spirit. Many of these impressed works include brief visitations from Vancouver’s urban wildlife in the image and spirit of crows, ravens and various birds she encounters in her walks through the urban rainforests near her home.
As a contemporary mixed media artist, Veronica works with various materials, watercolor, casein, oils or acrylics on a cemented or plastered canvas, to create art that is a hybrid of sculpture and painting. The result is a fresco-like surface interlaced with fine cracks and fractures, giving it a sense of antiquity and fragility.
