Veta Gorner is a Russian-born artist creating enigmatic, semi-figurative imagery. Her practice of open bite etching combined with a largely black and white monoprint technqiue gives her work a highly graphic, almost sculptural effect.
After receiving her MA in Industrial Design and Architecture, Veta moved from St Petersburg to the UK where she studied Printmaking at Morley College in 2002. Shortly afterwards, she was elected Member of Greenwich Printmakers Association, and has since exhibited worldwide. In 2004 she was awarded The University of Wales Prize and in 2009 claimed The John Purcell Award at The Originals, as well as The Birgit Skiold Memorial Trust Award.
