Veronica Lund | Hidden Pain
Substrate Wet Felting Wool and Silk Fibers Over Linen
37" x 54"
A Rose garden and a woman, both in different stages of existence. This is reflected by the fading thorny roses that produce pain in drastic contrast to the front facing woman who serenely contemplates the lushness of a spring garden.
Veronica was mentored by the legendary Italian artist, opera stage designer and author Beni Montresor who instilled in her the desire for continuous experimentation and learning from art in all its forms. “Impara di tutto”- (Learn from Everything) was the edict of the old master and the philosophy by which Veronica approaches her art. These lessons inspired her to turn her energy into reimagining the ancient art of felting into a modern construct.
Veronica uses the modern technique of Substrate or nuno wet felting to paint her canvas with the warmth and richness of natural fibers like wool and silk. This technique imparts her work with surprising texture, vivid color and a style reminiscent of impressionist painters. Her unique style is created by the long fibers that she uses as her palette and brush.
