Introducing Wendy Heldmann

I like this LA artist's point of view; looking up at trees.

There Can't Be a Longer Time, acrylic on canvas on panel, 36 x 54.5

Looking up, seeing the silhouettes of leaves, tree tops reaching in, a symmetry that might be artist-imposed, and a few surprising shifts of color... give me a sense a spaciousness and balance.

But what's all this about unease? Are these titles wry?

From a statement about Heldmann's work, "With translated imagery from photographs and videos taken from walks, pictures, traveling, and experiences, she fragments the representation of a place so that the pieces become part memory, part imagining, and part copying/doubling."

Prices range, for works on paper, between $1500 and $1700, and the lovely work on canvas on panel is $3,800 at Kenise Barnes Fine Art in the village of Larchmont, NY, where you can see some of Heldmann's work in person.
