Titled like that because of the beautiful fantasy with which she shows her fertile imagination.
The theme of her art work revolves around her characters. She likes clowns, a lot. They remind what she likes the most: Parties. She calls them ‘harlequins’, ‘halerquins’, ‘harlequinerians’, etc, and they are adorned with little antennas on their small heads, according to their mood. They have their own identity through details: long noses, molls, oval faces with almond-shaped eyes, lips with the shape of hearts, brilliant makeup and very original hairdos. There is a lack of ears in almost all her characters. They all present a pleasant disproportion in comparison with the human figure.
Her personal iconography is formed by known images: musical notes, balloons, hearts, flowers and rhomboid shapes. She shows special predilection for hearts, symbol of her lovely personality.
Her ‘graffiti’ deserves special attention: oval traces taken from her primary drawings that she does in her free time. They seem as embryonic or fetal shapes and cellular divisions. They evoke memories from the uterus, from the ephemeral survival that appears and disappears just like her balloons, from the ideal of humans to live in harmony.
All her characters and iconography constitute the symbols of her inner world, just as she lives it. These symbols, represented with her particular style, show the essence of deep knowledge of the universe, of the eternal circuit of birth and re-birth, of the human and spiritual life, to which only people like her can accede. In Verito’s painting, there is a revelation of the essential, an invisible magic to the senses, which can only be felt with the soul.
In her paintings, this beautiful whole goes suspended in halos of light and color that suggest the sensation of movement in an ethereal atmosphere and give a lot of visual texture, feeling and life.
“…Veronica, you have a lot of talent and that is why I admire you. I’d love to see an exhibition of yours someday, or even better if I could get one of your paintings…”
