PAINTINGS | COMMISSIONS | EXHIBITS
I believe color has an alluring voice that communicates with our emotions. My painting style fuses abstraction and realism, showcasing the layering of unexpected color into an image, redefining the tone of a captured moment. Impressionistic strokes formulate mood, depicting expression and movement.
Choosing images of historic value, nature’s landscape, and design lends to the narrative I rely on to collaborate and connect with the subjects I paint. Grounded in aesthetic, these works are a collection of abstract compositions. My paintings evolve and emerge with dynamic depth of color, making visible and kinetic what is overlooked or buried in the historicizing of an image. One review reflects the sentiment of many, “Her art drops into your soul and you can’t stop hugging it with your brain. All of her work is this way.” – Leilani McCoy
VSauerArt pieces have been exhibited at corporate events and art walks. I’ve been represented at the Lund’s Fine Art Gallery, and have enthusiastically participated in an “Artist in Action” programs. “Artist in Action” showcases art making through an aesthetic journey and provides an intimate experience bringing art to life. It allows patrons to witness art creation, giving the artwork personal and knowledgeable value.
Veronica Sauer creates art rich with daring color and bold composition. Often working from photographs to echo real life, she paints in fast-drying acrylic with large brushes and pallet knives, prioritizing shape, shadow, scale, and light. Hers are images created through the lens of a curious and imaginative mind.
In her portrait series, Veronica’s dynamic style offers fresh perspective on iconic faces, illuminating individual stories, and giving breath and movement to her subjects. Veronica‘s work in abstract realism casts a wider field of impact. Pieces highlight the emotional power of color infused into the heart of an image.
Veronica‘s passion for painting gained momentum with the brilliant teaching of an eccentric art history teacher. In University studies, a three-year position at the Henry Art Gallery, and travels to US and European art museums, Veronica was drawn to the vitality of Expressionism and Fauvism, art genres drenched in rich color contrasts. Following a corporate career and the interruption of her active life by a sports related accident, Veronica embraced her passion for creating her own art. Self-taught, Veronica has exhibited at corporate events and art walks, Lund’s Fine Art Gallery, and enthusiastically participated in “Artist in Action” programs. VSauerArt creations continue to gain public exposure and win commission work nationally.
American born and dual citizen of the US and Germany, Veronica Sauer lives in Seattle with a studio near Mount Rainier. Whether Portraits, Wildlife, Naturescapes, Abstracts, or Commissions, her artwork radiates her passion for painting.
