From February 2nd through March 4th, 2022, BoxHeart presents Heather Heitzenrater: Imaginarium.
Join is for the Public Reception with Heather on Saturday, February 5th from 5 - 7pm. It is Free and Open to the Public!

Heather Heitzenrater has always enjoyed science fiction and fantasy novels. What fascinated her the most involved the characters’ traveling to faraway lands, much different than our own. These portals left her completely spellbound and she would imagine herself stumbling upon one, awaiting the wonders on the other side. Heitzenrater wanted to find a world that beckoned us in with its allure of mystery and enchantment. Her artwork incorporates the figure with reflective Mylar. Its silver, liquid-like surface forms abnormal shapes and catches magnificent colors from its surroundings. Similar to a mirror, reflections contort images in ways that makes us see things differently. It creates abstract images in real life by twisting and bending to the point where objects and places are intangible. Heitzenrater uses these reflections in her paintings to create worlds full of chaos and curiosity. Her artwork lures the viewer in closer.
