Veronica Cay is an accomplished Australian Contemporary figurative artist. Focusing on the practices of drawing and sculpture, Veronica reflects upon what it means to be human: seeking connections, testing resilience and acknowledging frailties. With a practice that is heavily grounded in observational work and life drawing, Veronica creates characters that resist objectification and open a dialogue about the body experienced from within. Time spent slowly observing and connecting to the human landscape in the life drawing studio has become crucial to Veronica’s process. She uses experimental, lyrical and expressive mark-making to look closely at the human condition, capturing a beauty that radiates from below the surface, irrespective of age or gender.
