Valerie Veator is a Los Angeles–based artist working in painting, film, and installation. Her most recent work explores a space of intersubjectivity, specifically citing abstract painting, narrative filmmaking, and performative practices as they vacillate between traditional and contemporary forms. Screenic culture and issues in seeing/being seen are central to her practice. Her latest exhibition, We Three (My echo, my shadow and me), examines the culture of seeing as mediated through screens and its impact on contemporary art practices. The result, a tripartite work, exercises forms of tracing, embedding, concealing, and revealing across watercolor, film/video, and digital painting as a way to problematize viewing spaces and to encourage analytical perspectives toward that which is not always visible.
