About Veronica Huacuja

Veronica Huacuja Hi! My name is Veronica Huacuja (wu-a-koo-ha). I'm a plastic artist, and an online art teacher.* This is where I display my body of art. My work intends to picture life with its sometimes dark, dramatic, incomprehensible ways of presenting itself. I do my best to make art that has a metaphor within, a poetic moment of self-contemplation for those who want to "look" at it. ART INTERESTS. My art interests are diverse, such as sickness, pathological behaviour, forensics. Because of the different subjects I'm interested in, I've classified my work in collections. This helps me understand it in a better way. It also helps the re-creator to understand it, to invite or produce in him or her a state of mind that assists them in penetrating the work's creation circle. One thing I never do is "shut" the speech with my explanation or version of the work. I try hard to make art that, as Umberto Eco refers to in his oeuvre, "The Open Work", has polysemy or different interpretations done by the observers. So, I only point in a direction without defining a destiny. That journey has to be made by the re-creator. COLLECTIONS. In my "Portraits" collection, I work special characters in borderline situations. This means that the artworks are dramatic and in most of them I try to grasp their “exasperated beauty” (1). These criteria apply as well to a new collection I entitled "Women", in which I interpret and portray historical females; some renowned characters, others anonymous, but all of their biographies called my attention as an artist and as a woman. I treat most of these creations with drama. In my "Art and Radiology collection –Period I and Period II"–, the man and its precarious condition (temporality, decay, fragility...) is the central topic of my work. Some initial sources I use are radiological medical studies done to sick, genderless, anonymous persons. I like to call the results of my work as “Human Landscapes”. By this category, I mean to explore the carnal material that makes us human. I've divided this collection into two periods of my production: “Period I” goes from 2000 to 2003, and “Period II” gathers artwork I have created from 2015 up to date. I recently added a new collection, "The Relentless", where I picture people that have social malfunctions and disorders that drive them to crime. The tragedy of their lives and their cross paths in the lives of others are elements that impulse me to create this series. In this collection I include as well, the "manhunters", the professionals that pursue these dangerous outlaws. I think they are too relentless. So, those who fight "monsters" are also part of this collection. One thing I'd like to add is that my work isn't an apology for crime. It's my interpretation of a social phenomenon. ART INFLUENCES. My artistic influences are from many Latin American, American and European painters of all times. My work has a powerful influence from Francis Bacon artist’s oeuvre. PICTORICAL CURRENTS. The pictorial currents of my work are figurative and semi-abstract. MEDIUMS, SIZES. The mediums of my choice are mostly oil, acrylic on canvas or paper. The formats I use vary from letter size (8 by 11 inches) to 70 square inches (or so). I add another medium which I like very much to work with: Digital painting. ART TECHNIQUES. The techniques I use are traditional (oil and acrylic, crayon, pencil, clay sculpting, etc.) and digital painting (digital tablet, Photoshop, 3D sculpture, etc.). Hope you enjoy the work and thank you for visiting!
