Archway Gallery presents Segments & Spaces, featuring new paintings and sculptures by Veronica Dyer, on view December 7, 2019 - January 2, 2020.
The artist will be on hand to visit with guests during the exhibition opening reception on Saturday, December 7, from 5 - 8 p.m. at the gallery.
Veronica Dyer creates dynamic paintings and sculptures in a style that she refers to as, “abstract, with an industrial tendency.” In both her paintings and sculptures, areas of the composition are defined with geometric forms. The paintings incorporate the additional element of bold, and sometimes unconventional, color palettes.
Dyer works largely from her own intuition. “When I start a painting, there are no rules,” she explains. “Sometimes I know what I want; sometimes I don’t know what I’m going to do. It’s an intuitive process.” In creating the sculptures, she begins by selecting materials then intuitively assembles them into the finished work. The artist describes incorporating all the elements into the final assemblage as, “a collaborative play between technique and creativity.”
Veronica Dyer grew up in Venezuela. From her Italian father, she learned that the love of art is something very natural. Art training began early in her life; her grandfather, a profesional artist, was her first teacher and instructed her for many years. Dyer’s formal art training came from the Art School “Julio Arriaga” in Maracaibo, Venezuela. The remainder of her art training has come from her own curiosity and creative explorations. Her work has been part of multiple solo and group shows in Venezuela, the United States, and the Czech Republic.
