Statement

Valerie Veator is a Los Angeles–based artist working in painting, film, and installation. Her most recent work explores a space of intersubjectivity, specifically citing abstract painting, narrative filmmaking, and performative practices as they vacillate between traditional and contemporary forms. Screenic culture and issues in seeing/being seen are central to her practice. Her latest exhibition, We Three (My echo, my shadow and me), examines the culture of seeing as mediated through screens and its impact on contemporary art practices. The result, a tripartite work, exercises forms of tracing, embedding, concealing, and revealing across watercolor, film/video, and digital painting as a way to problematize viewing spaces and to encourage analytical perspectives toward that which is not always visible.

She received her MFA from UC Irvine in 2015, and her BFA in Painting from Pratt Institute in 2009. Solo exhibitions include We Three (My echo, my shadow and me) at the Contemporary Art Center Gallery (Irvine, CA); and Entre Deux at Pratt Institute's East Gallery (Brooklyn, NY). Selected group exhibitions include Fragment at the UCLA New Wight Gallery in 2015, and Abstraction: Sound & Vision at the Todd Madigan Gallery in 2013, curated by Joey Kötting. She received numerous awards including Fee Fellowships during all three years at UC Irvine, travel grants, and Presidential merit scholarships throughout all four years at Pratt Institute. Most recently she was included in the 2015 Pacific Coast issue of New American Paintings.
