About the Artwork:
“My pieces for this show are inspired by the mythological Mayan and Germanic stories of the goddesses of fertility and motherhood related to the earth and the coming of the spring time.
Akna is the goddess of motherhood and childbirth in the Mayan culture.
Ostara is the Germanic goddess of spring and dawn. She is the first warm of the spring winds, the birds that return, the trees that bud and curl forth leaves and flowers.
Both of these figures represent the awakening of the earth, rabbits and hares, from the dark winter season, to the light spring one.” – Veronica Jaeger
About the Artist:
Veronica Jaeger was born and grew up in Venezuela and moved to the United States in 2000. She received a M.F.A degree from the University of Texas Pan-American in 2006. Her work has been exhibited and awarded in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States and abroad.
The main focus of her work is to explore the meaning of consciousness through an ephemeral world of imaginary subjects merging with different elements: geometric shapes, lines, bubbles, ears, feet, eyes, clouds, heads. These elements symbolize transformation, life, death, and the impermanence of all forms and all things. Her ideas are mostly expressed using oil paints on canvas and drawings on paper.
