30upstairs welcomes our new artist in residence Veronica Green

Fresh from Venice, Wellington born artist Veronica Green will be part of the 30upstairs family as the artist in residence for the next month prior to her exhibition in late August. Green completed her degree in Fine Arts (Hons) in 2006 at Massey University, Wellington, and gained an artist residency at Spiazzi in Venice, Italy where she has been developing her skills with collage, light and paint.  While on the residency Veronica will be hard at work completing a mammoth 3m x 1.9m canvas for her upcoming exhibition The light of my shadow.

Her elaborate and detailed paintings transform in the presence or absence of light, and employ surrealism and abstraction. They also present an opportunity for viewers to explore their relationship with their own shadow, and to question ideas of of the double, animism and symbolism.

You’ll be able to see Veronica’s paintings when her exhibition opens on Friday 21st August, 5.30pm alongside Clarissa Lim and Jess Hubbard.
