Heitzenrater's paintings incorporate the figure with reflective Mylar. Its silver, liquid-like surface forms abnormal shapes and catches magnificent colors from its surroundings. 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 to create a world full of chaos and curiosity. The Mylar acts as the portal that ties the real world to the unknown.
