Although Verónica likes to think of herself as a self-taught artist, she concedes that a series of adventitious courses and workshops played a key role in her training process. She frequented the Fundación Pablo Atchugarry where she learned from its founder, sculptor Pablo Atchugarry. In 2014 the Piero Atchugarry gallery started representing her work. Born in 1970, in the Department of Treinta y Tres (Uruguay), Vázquez studied Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Engraving, Ceramics, Tapestry and History of Art.
"It’s possible that collect is my work’s genesis. Reusing has Its ethical, environmentalist motives, denouncing hyper-consumption. The use of those objects, Its limitations and conditioning factors mean a constant challenge to me. How manage the distance between the function for which the object was created and Its new function in the Art world?. The artwork needs time, today I see lines and tomorrow I see the background, It’s about seeing and seeing again.
