Veronica Perez

Utilizing hair, kitschy, and other unconventional materials in the sculptural works Veronica Perez creates intense personal moments by means of material hybridization and ideals of beauty. Material fragility echoes sentiments of a lost self, and at the same time comments on contemporary Latinx and feminist issues. Recently, Perez has been working at the intersection of identity, vulnerability, protection, and power through the facade of dark absurdity using materials such as sugar, fake hair, chain link fences, and fake sunflowers. She was recently awarded the Ellis-Beauregard Fellowship in the Visual Arts and is currently an artist in residence at Indigo Arts Alliance in their Black Seed Studio Fellowship in Portland, Maine.
