Véronique La Perrière M.

    Rooted in a drawing practice, her work explores states of consciousness and processes of transformation. With an approach that is both poetic and conceptual, she examines our relationship to time, history and mythology by tracing visual narratives that evoke metamorphosis and the time of dreams. Drawing manifests itself in different forms, finding expression in the media of printmaking, sculpture, video or installation. In an approach that is both poetic and conceptual, she examines our relationship with time, history and myth, tracing visual narratives that call for metamorphosis and dreamtime. Her work seeks to engage with spaces of threshold and what lies outside memory. Through a poetic engagement with the universe and materials, her approach seeks to nurture that which, within us, is capable of dreams and visions.
