Heidi is one of our favorite gallery artists! Her work has been featured in several shows here at 23 Sandy and she is also in the current Photo+Book show with her gorgeous book titled, Lost and Found. In addition, she recently brought us a new series of miniature photographs on copper and aluminum that are so sweet and unbelievably tiny—think smaller than two inches.
From her artist statement: “Heidi uses photographs to transform found objects into playful and seductive sculptures. She fuses transparent figurative and family portraits with children’s toy blocks, games and collectible souvenirs, creating a playful tension between imagery and object. These works depart from the formality of a frame as they are arranged on a table top or a shelf, often stacked or placed side by side to reveal narratives of family snapshots or the complexities of the feminine allure. In combination, Heidi gives us a chance to visit these earlier playful times while drawing on memories, contemporary issues, and visual formality.”
Stop by and see these tiny treasures soon!
