ARTIST TALK: Veronica Arquilevich Guzman – September 20, 2018



Veronica Arquilevich Guzman is a Mexican-born painter and ceramicist whose work is deeply inspired by her Mexican heritage as well as her experiences living in China, Malaysia, India, Vietnam, Italy, and the United States. Taking a spiritual view of the cosmos, she aims to reflect a deep interest in and appreciation of the natural world in her work and process.

In this Artist Talk, Veronica talks about her work and life and her experiences with Lillian Pitt’s work, especially the Wasco Totem.
