Veronika explores our psychological relationship to surroundings, the unstable interface of nature and culture, human frailty and search for place through drawings, paintings, mosaics and sculptures. Her work is taking a wry look at the daily struggle in our busy lifestyles, which can make us blind to moments of beauty and reflection.
Themes as diverse as migration, adaptation, natural systems, recycling, interaction between humans and other species and search for place inspire her artworks. Veronika explores these concepts in an emotional way through semi-abstract and expressive art works.
