Veronica ConstableVeronica Constable has a BFA in Fine Arts and minors in Spanish, visual studies, and art history from Cornell University. During her time as an undergraduate, she pursued various interests such as psychology and sociology as a means of maintaining an interdisciplinary practice. She has worked with a variety of artistic institutions and artists, both locally and abroad.
As an artist, she aims to not only change the dialogue concerning art and accessibility on a global scale, but to also introduce previously ignored issues such as abuse and trauma which refuse to adhere to a specific group – to engage on a human level. Veronica is interested in the idea of the gaze, the nuances associated with the notion of agency of the subject and the image, and depicting trauma through life-sized colored pencil drawings of her sisters. The Narcissistic Family refers to a book written by Robert and Stephanie Pressman who discuss the concept of a narcissistic family as a dysfunctional familial system in which the needs of the parents supersede the needs of their children.Itex Disregarding stereotypes, dysfunctional behavior can be incredibly subtle or explicit, thus making it difficult to see and understand. She is interested in bringing attention to these issues not only in the art world but to a larger demographic as well. Each drawing is around eight to 10 feet long and takes several hundred hours to complete over a period of one to two months. By exhibiting them on the floor, she is encouraging the viewer to consider two critical ideas — the vulnerability stemming from the way in which the work is presented, and the way in which this vulnerability alters the perception of not only the work but the subject of the work as well.
