Veronica’s artwork shows her yearning for her culture.
Veronica Collin is a descendant of the Wiradjuri Nation. She was born in 1962 and lives in Griffith, NSW.
Veronica began painting some years ago, using acrylic as her only medium. Her work now encompasses sand (which she was introduced to in 1999), charcoal, silk painting and mixed media, covering a variety of subject matter.
The main themes of Veronica’s paintings are geometric, design- orientated portrayals of Creation and Dreaming.
“I paint to engage the viewer to come with me on my journey of exploration of Wiradjuri Antiquities and I hope that through my artworks the tradition of Storytelling remains alive. Strong colour dominates with clean crisp lines and the use of linear repetition and dots”.
Veronica has completed certificate III in an Aboriginal Arts class at the Riverina Institute of TAFE and has been accepted in various regional art competitions. Her artworks have been displayed on the cover of local magazines, wine labels, a mural for public display, tourism signage and have been shown in exhibitions at a local and national level.
Veronica held a solo exhibition in Hogarth’s Gallery, Sydney in September 2010 and at the “Walker Street Gallery”, Dandenong in September 2011. Her works are available to buy exclusively through In The Frame, Griffith.
