“Art & Life” - Documentary about Veronica Pacheco’s life. A two year project that will begin in the year 2010 and will finish in the year 2012.
From the merge of both previous styles, primary and recycled, comes up a new style called Intermediate. This style has a trend of color very balanced, and at the same time it is very rich in tiny details.
WHAT INSPIRES VERONICA?
This question is a constant that emerges when people contemplate Verito’s paintings. It is very interesting to analyze the titles of the paintings. They are the synthesis of the painting and can be understood, underneath, as the source of inspiration.
Verito doesn’t elaborate a conceptual planning about her art. She is not capable of articulate a concept or support with an answer a direct question about her ‘inspiration’, yet. However, everything indicates that she knows what she wants to express on her paintings.
What does she wants to express? She has said: ‘…they are my angels with antennas…’, ‘…the balloons take them to the sky…’, ‘…my heart shaped balloons take my love to the sky…’, ‘…He listens…’, ‘…to give kisses of love…’, ‘…I love to dance…’ This represents the magical and wonderful imagination that she carries in her soul. Her world, imaginary to us, but real for her, is a world full of magic, color, harmony, happiness, love and friendship.
Because of her condition, Verito requires assistance for her personal care, as well as for different activities, therapies and studies.
Painting is taken as a therapy applied with a defined method specially adapted to her. Because of the risks that imply the use of chemical inks, varnish, thinner, etc, she requires a person to take care of these things; as well as, looking for the proper care and wash of Verito’s hands, paintbrushes and other materials used in the art studio.
“…I am impressed seeing how wonderful is your art work, full of color and naivety; you are a happy spirit like lots of us would like to be. I am a plastic art professor in Costa Rica and I have always believed that art is a mean to express ourselves and to grow. Congratulations to your mother for the support that she has given you and for the advices that she gives us, to teachers and professors that have opportunity to teach children and young people to enjoy and fill their spirits with art. Your proposal is fantastic and your determination a model to all of us. Thank you for making out of art a game of color and fantasy…”
