Carol Heft: The Changing Landscape: Motion and Memory
Lederer Online Gallery is please to announce our fourth virtual exhibition for fall 2020, Carol Heft: The Changing Landscape: Motion and Memory. This exhibition exclusively concerns the importance of drawing to Heft’s art practice.
Heft’s use of line, and movement back and forth across the page imparts a sense of vitality and dynamism. The line or marks in some present a slow build to a complete rendering of foliage, the woodiness of trees, and the far horizon. In others there is a distinct interfusion of the terrain and line describing it that forms the abstract. However, that same affinity for gesture, to gesture in the landscape, now become marks that imbue the figure with music that insists on being read as a performance to dance. Carol Heft’s drawings, whether figurative or descriptive of nature enliven an energy to move back and forward, side to side calls the viewer to participate in the dance of life.
Carol Heft has exhibited her work in numerous galleries and museums, national and international and include one of early artist run co-opt gallery Blue Mountain in New York City, Matera, in Mattera Italy, Fairleigh Dickinson University, in New Jersey, Westbeth Gallery, New York City, Gross McCleef Gallery in Philadelphia, PA.
