Artist

Verónica Gaona

Verónica Gaona is a Mexican American multidisciplinary artist whose work is deeply influenced by the current socio-political climate. She explores themes of architecture and migration, utilizing remnants of death and truck parts to represent the hybrid nature of remittance-built environments that span international borders. Gaona incorporates the perspectives of displaced and exploited communities, highlighting aspects of the diaspora such as opacity, transnationality, and impermanence. Her practice challenges traditional approaches to memorialization and seeks to subvert established power structures.

Verónica Gaona has exhibited work at Charlie James Gallery, Los Angeles; Lawndale Art Center, Texas; and Blaffer Art Museum, Texas, among others.
