This installation seeks to find harmony in dissonant materials, usage, misusage, and the interplay of context in an experimental lexicon.
This installation is not a diagnosis, a cure, a political statement, a warrant, a middle finger, an edict, an accusation against man, a complaint against god, or a wish for the future. This installation is not about you or your mother. Well, maybe a little about you… cause it’s always about you, isn’t it? And you bug me a little.
Heather Tolleson is a painter, sculptor, and mixed-media installation artist living and working in Austin, Texas. She continues to focus on pure formalism while utilizing materials classic to artists for centuries, reused and reinvented for the modern world.
