Veronica Herber

While attending AUT University Veronica Herber became fully engaged in contemporary art practice. She moved on from being a painter when she unearthed a desire to work on a larger scale, discovering masking tape as a medium half way through her arts degree. Over two years of experimentation she fell in love with the immediacy and versatility of the material, culminating in her trademark tape fabric and large-scale outdoor sculpture works. Alongside the installations Herber also developed a quieter practice utilizing Japanese Washi tape on paper.

In the five years since she has been included 4 times in Sculpture by the Sea (Australia), 3 Waiheke Headland on the Gulf exhibitions and created installations in Mexico and Cuba. Her Washi tape work has also been included in several group exhibitions and has been at the center of three solo shows. ​Her work is included in the Chartwell Collection, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki and The James Wallace Arts Trust. She received the James Wallace Arts Trust New Zealand sculptor Award, Sculpture by the Sea Bondi in 2015.
