Veronica Jaeger is a Venezuelan-born artist living in the US since the year 2000. Her work has been widely recognized in solo and group exhibitions nationally and abroad with the inclusion of awards, grants, and publications. She earned a master’s degree in studio painting from the University of Texas-RGV where she currently teaches as a part-time instructor. She maintains a studio practice in Mission, TX.
In her paintings, Jaeger explores the concept of impermanence by using bubbles as metaphorical interpretations of life. Through depictions of imaginary whimsical scenarios and figurative characters, she incorporates bits and pieces from nature, human physiology, childhood memories, metaphysics, and beliefs. The ongoing exploration and expression of these random elements, have given form to a unique symbolic language intended to contrast realities and show glimpses of the interconnectedness of the whole.
