Veronica Corzo-Duchardt is the next star of our Artist Process Video Series, where we shine the spotlight on some of our incredible Permanent Collection artists and the process behind how they create their art.
Every artist approaches their work differently, and a look at their process is an intimate look into their values, the purpose of their art, and their relationship with creativity. We know that you’ll be inspired by each of these videos, just as we were, and they’ll maybe even encourage some experimentation within your own creative practice, whatever that may be.
A Studio Visit With Veronica Corzo-Duchardt
Veronica Corzo-Duchardt is a visual artist, a graphic designer, and a first-generation Cuban-American immigrant. She recently moved to Los Angeles, although she called Chicago home for over 10 years. Veronica is a multimedia artist, working with screen printing, photocopying, spray paint, drawing, photography, and found or collected objects. She works iteratively, often creating several layered versions of a single idea or image. Her work is graphic, layered, and full of fragmented and evolving imagery.
In this video, Veronica comes to us from her studio in LA, which is a room in her apartment. She explains that oftentimes her work has to change depending on where she is, how much room she has, and how settled in she is. Her LA studio is still being set-up, so Veronica can not yet work on new screen printing projects, a process which requires tons of equipment. Instead, she is working with different mediums, choosing materials which are easier to use and less messy. It’s interesting to consider how the different bodies of Veronica’s work (and any artist really!) are determined not purely by the artist’s desires or ideas, but by their material circumstances.
