ABOUT THE ARTIST
The best the artist now known to express an ambition, into image an intention, there sensaciony choose the topic that will be defined, challenging the wisdom of the beholder. This will rebuild your imagination and assume the role of naive reader or acute. Veronica Virasoro works are, at first glance, the feeling of great paintings-drawings for comic whose narrative has been interrupted and that shows only the beginning, hoping that the parable is not interrupted recirrido in the sample until it is finally unveiled. But not, as she works on the threshold of the text, emphasizing the two genuine means of their work that are drawing and color.
The drawing, as Ingres said, is the probity of art and Virasoro work is so honest that does not stop or hesitate, it is straightforward, clean, clear and simple and naive as it slowly guess the trap: first us into a world and ambiguous images and tense, kind and ironic. It is here where the mystery is revealed, she narrates the picture, not the innocent possible history in which we were surprised at first look, the cat, the stone or the boot, while attractive, long for the glory of LI line, which is his pride and where they never will.
The fabrics are coated with beautiful color drawings also produce another speech, or a simple text acting alone, imposing a second look on the one hand drawing and legitimize the other is revealed in all its immanence.
The drawing and color, these are the two dimensions where the artist plays with pasiony talent. Behold virtue.
