There is a freedom in the restriction of color, an anonymity in the origin of the wood that enables entirely new interpretations.  No longer a piano key, chair leg, or ruler, but an indication of shape, an openness of being, and a natural layering of shadow.

Getting to Know Heather

When asked how she became an artist, sculptor Heather Patterson replied, “I just seem to be built that way.” Heather is passionate about creating, and is constantly inspired by her daily surroundings and experiences. The artist’s body of work is governed by her mission to reassign meaning to materials that have outlived their perceived purpose. She works with reclaimed wood and window panes to produce geometric wall sculptures that may remind the viewer of abstract modernist paintings. Modernism conjures an underlying tension in Heather-–a “vibration,” she calls it. Each sculpture is created without a premeditated plan or sketch, but is instead governed by feeling and intuition.
