I was at a terrific benefit on Monday for the Community Word Project that teaches poetry writing and performance in the nyc public schools (rah rah!) and encountered some visual poetry in their art-auction. Introducing Kylie Heidenheimer's atmospheric windows of color and space...take a look. AT readers, what do you think? Wouldn't these give a blank wall something to say? Give your eye a pause? Insert some instant atmosphere...some breath into a space?
Tho non-representational work may not tickle everyone, I have always enjoyed it, especially work like this that conveys such relish in the materials used to make it. Give a shout if you live with this manner of art around you... where do you have it in your home?
These paintings are wonderful to spend time with -- props to Jean Vong who managed to capture their depth and texture in photographs so we could share them with you.
Heidenheimer's work is currently featured in a solo show, BURSTS, ATMOSPHERE and STASIS, on exhibit at Ohio Northern University in Ada, OH. The show runs through Friday March 28. There will be a gallery talk in Elzay gallery at 3:30, March 28
