I enjoyed talking with Lisa D about my current show and work in architectural abstractions.
Here's a short excerpt from our 20 minute conversation.
Lisa D: Tell us what we’re looking at your show at the Evanston Art Center
Heather: Catching Light is what I’m interested in. I work with glass because it catches light, because it shifts and shimmers and it’s dynamic in a way that’s pretty unique. At some point I realized there are these interesting lines and forms in the built world. As we move through the cityscape glass is shimmering and reflecting the natural world. I realized there’s a lot of overlooked beauty here that I wanted to explore. This show pulls together a lot of new work. I was able to do much bigger pieces for this show…
Lisa D: …because of big walls in front of big windows
Heather: …yes, and my work loves light. This is the perfect setting for my work.
