My work brings my delicate abstract experiences into a more concrete reality.

At first glance, my pieces seem representational, but I think as you look closer this becomes uncertain. They bear a likeness to certain things, but they’re something else, something other.

When I make a mould, I literally empty an object out. Where the physical material ends, something metaphysical can begin. My working process offers instances of clarity and intense sensual awareness, and this is something I want my pieces to convey.

Each image becomes imbued with personal significance, but the viewer will bring their own perceptions. There’s a transformation of materials, but also of possible readings.









Born in London, Veronica Wilton grew up in the USA. Back in the UK, she studied at Chelsea School of Art, and Byam Shaw School of Art. Graduating in 1989, she took part in the British ‘New Contemporaries’, with Damien Hirst, Maud Sulter and other artists of her generation. Through the 90s, she curated exhibitions in unconventional settings and public spaces in London, including ‘Siteworks’. After a personal loss, she spent time learning to fly light aircraft, an experience she says was important, and flight, lightness, poise, balance, vulnerability versus strength are all visible themes in her work.

Veronica’s pieces are in private collections in the UK, USA and Italy. Her projects have been backed by Arts Council England, London Arts Board, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Oppenheim-John Downes Trust, Royal Society for the Arts, and others. She published ‘Siteworks’ by Isobel Bowditch, in 1997, (ISBN 0 9531643 0 6), and self-published ‘Proposals 1 – 9’, an artist’s bookwork in 2001.

Recent solo shows include, ‘The Time is Now’ with Meakin + Parsons, Oxford, and ‘Helios Rising’ at Close Ltd, Somerset. Veronica currently lives and works in Somerset.
