Verónica Vázquez

Biography

Uruguay, b.1970

Born in 1970, in the Department of Treinta y Tres (Uruguay), Verónica Vázquez studied Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Engraving, Ceramics, Tapestry and History of Art.

Although Verónica likes to think of herself as a self-taught artist, she concedes that a series of adventitious courses and workshops played a key role in her training process amidst the exploration of her own artistic vision.

 

She frenqueted the Fundación Pablo Atchugarry where she learned from its founder, sculptor Pablo Atchugarry. This experience allowed her to meet masters such as Octavio Podesta, Henrique Broglia, and Miguel Angel Battegazzore, important figures of Uruguayan art.

Of significant value was her course on History and Theory of Art, by artist Miguel Ángel Battegazzore, as well as the Sculpture Workshop with Luis Robledo at the “Casa de la Cultura” in Maldonado Uruguay. She pursued further pottery studies in Buenos Aires, with potter Jorge Fernández Chiti.

 

Role models for Verónica are Jorge Oteiza, Eduardo Chillida, Germán Cabrera, and above all, Richard Serra.

Verónica’s materials of choice for large-scale works are metal plates and iron – both of which are present in her exhibits in the Fundación Pablo Atchugarry and in Piero Atchugarry’s Gallery in Pueblo Garzón (Uruguay).

In 2014 the Piero Atchugarry gallery started representing her work, this was followed by a solo exhibition in 2014 and another in 2015. Afther then the gallery edited a monograph catalogue on her work and brough it to some of the most important international art fairs such as SP-arte (Brazil), Art New York (USA), ArtInternational Istanbul (Turkey), Art Rio (Brazil), Art Verona (Italy), Art Stage Singapore (Singapore), Artefiera (Italy).

In September 2015, her Work has been shown in “Amore e Scelta” foundation Abbazia di Rosazzo, Udine (Italy). In December the Sammer Gallery presented her work to Pinta in Miami during the Art Basel week.

Her artworks are in private collections in Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Italy and the United States, as well as public collections such as the Buckhorn Sculpture Park (USA) and the Fundación Pablo Atchugarry (Uruguay).
