Archway Gallery presents Veronica Dyer: "Things I Said" opening reception
Working primarily with acrylics, Veronica Dyer builds her works of art in layers. It is the constant progression in her artwork that excites her - the changes, the challenges, and the accidents. This artistic process brings her enjoyment and fulfillment; by seeing and sensing the canvas acquire a life of its own, an expression of the intangible coming from all realms of her experiences eventually becomes a visual record.
Dyer's abstract works are an adventure into worlds often only discovered in the attempt to represent them. She prefers to paint in series exploring multiple approaches. "Things I Said" is a series with structured design and planning accentuated by layers of paint and other materials creating subtle impressions of geometry.
In this new series, Dyer has combined two different styles of work - Industrial and Contemporary. Despite working with meticulously delicate brush strokes during the first layers of the painting, the final result is texturally rough with bold strikes and no transparency, embueing the work with a sense of abandonment rather than that of an artist’s creation. The materials used for these recent works incorporate cardboard, metal, cloth, and mesh with the paint to create an urban quality.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through June 1.
