Light, which permeates all matter, is allowed to irradiate her forms, sometimes dissolving the flesh to leave only patterns and contours. Although the figure retains the centrality in her work, it is no longer a purely physical entity, but increasingly a metaphysical creation.

These paintings are music that one can touch: they are visible music. Vera works as a choreographer sculpting sound into form. Čiurlionis, Kandinsky, Stanislavski, and the Pythagorean school spoke about the unity of dance, sound, color, light and movement which all unite in her paintings. I can hear the music from her paintings as invisible orchestration of mastery of a celestial composition. There is the sound of the cello or the multiple voices of an organ in the powerful lines of the works of her hands. It is not a coincidence that her paintings can only be named by musical titles.
