Conceptual ceramics

  • • Verónica interprets the Galician landscape as matter and form
  • • Her work has a narrative, poetic and performative intention
  • • She collaborates with visual artists, performers, poets and choreographers

Verónica Moar studied English Philology before enrolling in a ceramics workshop at the Pablo Picasso School of Arts and Crafts in A Coruña and dedicating herself to ceramics. She took her first steps with master Ánxel Cao, who instilled in her passion and respect for the craft. Her love for this discipline grew little by little until it became her life project. In 2013 she launched her atelier where she creates artistic or utilitarian pieces with poetic and narrative nuances, establishing a close dialogue with other disciplines such as sculpture, performance and contemporary dance. Her objects result from interpreting the traditions, the culture and the geography of the Atlantic region where she lives and works. The land and sea of Galicia and the collective memory of its people are present in her experimental work.

Blanco Roto

This wall sculpture includes two linen patchworks decorated with stitched pieces of porcelain. The piece symbolises a threshold. With it, the artist intends to recall the Noren, the traditional Japanese curtains that hang from many doors in Japan, but also the typical curtains of southern Spain that often adorn the exterior doors of households.

This porcelain plate and cup set belongs to the Salseiro collection. This term, of Galician origin, usually defines the fine droplets produced by the ship's bow when sailing or the drops formed by waves breaking against rocks. For this reason, both the plate and the cup are decorated with subtle cobalt-coloured drops that recall an Atlantic landscape.
