Heather Patterson: Reclaimed Terrain
Opening Reception Wednesday, November 18, 5:30 - 7:30pm
Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo show with Heather Patterson.
Heather Patterson's work documents the ever changing landscape and the impact humans have on the environment around them. She recreates geographic patterns and then layers them, creating a new and abstracted terrain. This combination of forms utilizes imagery such as computer generated weather patterns, cellular structures, water movement patterns, and other natural phenomena.
Patterson's work acknowledges our constant evolution, propelled by technological advances, while satisfying the innate human desire for the natural world. She focuses on the repetition and recurrence of patterns found in the natural phenomena that inspires her, and the intertwining of geometric and organic forms become an important part of her process.
