Veronica A. Pérez is an artist whose work primarily focuses on using sculpture as a tool from which to empower people by means of exercising radical empathy. Pérez uses sculpture as a means to create intense personal moments that critically contest narratives of identity by means of hybridization, alongside ideal of beauty and nostalgia. Fragility echoes sentiments of a lost self and at the same time, parallels contemporary feminist tensions.
Pérez has a BFA from Moore College of Art and Design and a Master's in Fine Arts from Maine College of Art and she is currently working in Westbrook, ME. Her most recent solo exhibition untitled, was at Kingston Gallery in Boston, ME.
Currently, she teaches at Southern Maine Community College in the Sculpture Dept. and Bomb Diggity Arts in Portland, ME. She is also a current artist-in-residence in Rockland, Maine through the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation.
