Veronica Jaeger: Creator of the Architecture of the Moon Portrait Series

Veronica Jaeger is an accomplished artist with a vibrant mindset on what shapes our reality. Prominent shapes of all sorts and sizes can be seen in conjunction with her portraits – a surreal style of paintings that have elegantly graced the walls of museums and universities across the country.

What’s on Her Mind?

Asking who we are and why we’re here continues to plague the mind of the Venezuelan artist. “I always have two things on my mind when I paint: the human body and/or the human face along with the geometric shapes of architecture.” Having studied and received a bachelor’s degree in Architecture, then later earning a master’s degree in studio painting from the University of Texas-Pan American in 2008, it goes without saying that this lady is skilled and educated with a well-rounded background.

Her personal passion and thirst for knowledge about the pseudo scientific questions of exploration outside of the Earth encourages her to paint unique characters. Veronica enjoys reading the words of Zecharia Sitchin, a Russian philosopher who explored life outside of Earth and believed humans were not originally from this world, but were instead created through genetic manipulation in ancient times by a superior and more technologically advanced race.


Exploring the Bigger Questions

She asks, “Where are we going in the afterlife?” to encourage people to think of how things aren’t always as we perceive them. In her art, she combines the best of both worlds: a cosmic and whimsical feel with the tangible existence of buildings and pyramids from Egyptian structures. Her inspiration from Sitchin’s writings is reflected in her art. In exploring these concepts, and as part of her ‘Architecture of the Moon’ series, the women in her paintings can be seen as astronauts that are superior beings or goddesses, creators and guardians of Earth.

Changing Our Mindset

When asked the question, “How do you think your art can shape society?” her answer was, “If we change what we know about society and go back to what Sitchin says about our world being an experiment, then it can change everything. Politics, religion, space, science, everything could change if we changed our mindset.”

Personal Accomplishments

In 2008, she was awarded with a grant by the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC) where she was given the funds needed to continue her craft of painting, which later led to her artwork being displayed in various museums across the country. You can find a list of her many accomplishments and information about her artwork on her website.

With over 2,000 followers on Instagram, it’s easy to see that people love her art. Her primary medium is oil on canvas, but she has also done some installation art pieces and drawings.

When asked about her goal as an artist, she replied while chuckling, “Well, the goal is to sell more work”. Ultimately, though, Jaeger would just like to be able to keep painting and create art for as long as possible as a means of sharing her voice with a large audience. She would like for people to experience a sort of non-traditional spiritual awakening when they look at her artwork, getting people to ask themselves bigger questions about our existence on Earth.
