Monika Veriopoulos’ work is influenced by shadows. She says: “In Greece where I grew up, one is always conscious of the world of shadows. They become part of life, following one, ahead of one, undulating over the terrain, merging with other shadow shapes to form confusing patterns across the different surfaces”.
Veriopoulos is also fascinated by human shadows and she draws from life. These two aspects of her work inform one another. The presence
of figures in her landscapes and their relationship to it are suggested through forms that have no material substance of their own.
