Lucia Veronesi

Our vintage minds...
Lucia Veronesi is a painter who divides her time between Venice and Milan. The subject of works by Veronesi is often vintage shoes and clothes, as she is drawn to the connection between the wardrobe and the living. The ever-present attraction to goods that allow us to demonstrate a sense of aesthetics, personality, physical need, social standing and mood can explain the viewer's attraction to these pieces. Veronesi highlights the presence of such coverings in our lives, as well as the delightful compositions to which they lend themselves.
