ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Veronica Clements is a senior pursuing her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Painting. She is interested in themes exploring women as both subject and artist in history. Her work is playfully confrontational, and she enjoys navigating uncertainty with a humorous approach. 

ABOUT THE COLLECTION:
This exhibition is a collection of works by Veronica Clements aka LilVSwagPrincess. The art featured in this show, like her chosen name, is deliberately playful and embodies an emerging identity. The work combines references and media from childhood with past and present pop culture. The layered media challenges the notions of expected material and subject matter. Ironically addressing what it means to be female in the Art world, LilVSwagPrincess humorously explores the privilege, expectations, and challenges of art making. LilVSwagPrincess celebrates female identity, female friendships, and self love.
