Currently on view at Interstate Projects, Brooklyn is “Heand,” a solo exhibition by Heather Guertin featuring new paintings. Jamie Sterns describes the show in the exhibition catalogue, “Heather Guertin creates figures that are in a state of becoming and you can see this in how the oil paint creates movement and energy. The tenuousness of their creation is suggestive of the conflict of the human condition and the ways in which it is unsteady and impermanent. These works are visualized attempts to becoming realized in the body and self in a universal way. The paintings are not an autobiography or a stand in for one, it is not about her, Heather, it is about how this is what we all face; trying to achieve self realization without having all the parts, answers, or even knowing the right questions to ask.”
“Heand” is on view through February 15, 2014.
