AGUA DE MAR
September 1 – October 28, 2023
AGUA DE MAR is a summer series in which Verónica Pasman explored the energy of water in four different locations, all representing a special time and a particular experience. The series was explored through painting, collage, and photography that evolved away from the initial water inspired blues and greens into paintings of various color palettes. This is Pasman’s first exhibition with us, and the paintings with their various interpretations of the original locations have adapted to the height and layout of our Back Room Gallery. As a traveling exhibition, AGUA DE MAR is currently on view at Arts Warehouse, but this body of work will continue to other spaces where it will garner a new viewing experience with every space it is installed into.
About the Artist
Verónica Pasman (b.1974) is an Argentinian mixed media artist based in Miami whose work focuses on revealing her primitive energy, abandoning her humanity tied to reasoning. Her paintings (primarily acrylics, ink, and gold foil on paper and canvas) feature sparse, nature scribbles often overlapping color stains and expressive brush strokes. Nature and the translucent palette of the ocean is a recurring theme on her work. Her search wishes to express the dialogue between the real and the unconscious yet to be revealed.
She received her degree in Graphic Design in 1994 and after, her career meandered through different design fields. It started at the Packaging Bureau of Avalos and Bourse, and continued at the Art Department of Para Ti Magazine, Editorial Atlántida. She attended an internship at Grazia Magazine working for the largest publishing company in Milán, Italy, Mondadori Editore. Back in Buenos Aires, she joined FAC Image Bureau, and was responsible for the brand Paula Cahen D’Anvers for women and kids. Verónica also worked for several independent brands and collaborated with publishers such as Guadal, El Gato de Hojalata, Chicas x Chicas, Ediciones B, Albatros, Sudamericana, Grijalbo, Editorial Periplo, Ohlalá, Diario La Nación, and Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial. Verónica is still working in this field in Miami and Buenos Aires.
In 2019 she joined Collective 62 and rented her own studio where she works full time on her paintings.
