Veronica Gunnarson


VERONICA Gunnarson

1972 Born in Miami, Florida

Veronica Gunnarson ’s paintings fuse both a free-flow style of intuition with the delicate and precise impact of pointillism.  Influenced from objects as diverse as Baccarat crystal, embroidery, jewelery and pop culture, Gunnarson’s contemporary canvases consists of layers of patterns, textures and colors, each aesthetically balanced in the symphony of her compositions.  Executed with bold intensity, the raw energy suggested through Saenz’s paintings consistently question the reliability of both sensory impressions and intimacy of the movement.

Capturing the transparencies of crystal and traditional stitching techniques, Gunnarson’s aesthetic of   intuitional action is derived from a highly planned process.  Each work of art is manifested from her fascination in boldly intensive patterns, elements which are poured, dripped, overlapped and pushed to resemble dots.  Saenz builds up each canvas in a series of internally consistent characteristics, engaging her emotion on one visual motif at a time.

Respecting each layer as an individual entity, Saenz’s paintings lure the viewer into an atmosphere where one can let go and discover her imagination and interpret the detailed work. Each work is a history of accurately transmitted memories overlapped to create a spiritual evolution. Her deliberate intention to draw the viewer into her world is to create a personal journey for each person.
