Véronique La Perriére M.'s charcoal drawings are surreal and almost a bit creepy, yet one can't help but to continue to look at them and wonder what's going on. La Perriére describes her art by saying, "My artistic practice is choreographed around questions that relate to memory, perception and identity. Through the medium of drawing, printmaking, sculpture, installation and video, my research addresses the work of time and its imprint. With the use of narration and self-fiction, I create tales and stories which stage the search for identity, the representation of the self, and the quest towards a past in constant need of reconstruction."
She further explains that her "recent drawings linger in the land of the conscious and the unconscious and probe how the body can give visibility to a psychic world. The images propose fantastic and poetic anomalies of the human body, as manifestations of foreign and remote components, which surface, mark, transform and metamorphosize the body and its content."
