Love Letter to Lewes

This exhibition investigates a place and one's relationship to it over a long period. She uses the landscape as an entrance point, the continuity discovered in the change. This show highlights the feelings brought about by a place that has reflected and left an impression. It speaks to care and community, to grace and growth.

Heidi combines drawing and printmaking practices with work for the body. Her method is slow and laborious, allowing her time to contemplate and redefine her relationship to place. She explores her connection to energy and the energy of a place as it creates a vortex of good. It is through this observation that the pieces emerge. The process is therapeutic, a type of mending, paying close attention to the tear or rip. By bringing the parts together, Heidi creates a new wholeness, with traces from the past functioning in the present.
