Laurence Veri

Laurence Veri


Laurence Veri considers the ceramic process as an extension of her sensibility, becoming a research tool to observe and mark our moving world. By the elusive nature of clay, its permanence and its flow, the artist questions our relationship to living and non-living beings that surround us. The figures stamped and engraved in clay refer to the natural world through a range of myths and lived experience. They adapt to the surface, sprout and metamorphose, living in an almost stoic state of latency, other times fruiting and wilting in cadence. Her fossil-sculptures reveal both love and death, strength and fragility.


Laurence Veri (b. 1993, Montreal, Canada) holds a BFA in Visual Arts from Concordia University. Her ceramic sculptures explore the natural world and its ideas of physicality, growth and decay through all imaginable permutations. Recently, her work has been seen in Montréal at Galerie Laroche/Joncas (2019), VENDU/SOLD benefit auction for Esse Magazine (2019), Papier (2020) and Projet Pangée (2020). In the past year her work has been part of group exhibitions at Cleo the Gallery (Savannah, US) the plumb (Toronto) and Projet Casa (Montreal).
