Formally rooted in abstraction, Angela Heisch’s paintings and drawings take on both architectural and biomorphic forms. Heisch describes the structures as “breathing”, yet existing as spaces into which the viewer could pass. The beauty and playfulness that is inherent in the work is belied by the eerie sense of the unknown. Heisch has uncanny precision, pushing the viewer to question the balance between perfection and perceived perfection. Some gestures magnify while others obscure, some forms stand by as silent sentinels while still others vibrate, on the verge of combustion.
