Heidi Jung

 

These works were created over an entire year of production, with a focus on each piece being independent from the next. Many started in January 2019 with a visit the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens in London. Expanding on composition and scale while continuing with my traditional materials, I am working to push the limits of a subject matter and medium that I love.

Brought up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, HeidiJung as an artist has naturally been drawn to a subject matter most timeless and familiar to her.Through draughtsmanship and technique acquired over the years in both college and career, she has brought an extraordinary and authentic approach to drawing.

 

The ethereal effects she achieves with inks, charcoal, erasure and grattage might remind the viewer of the spontaneity of darkroom photography; indeed, photography was the formal emphasis of her arts degree.

 

These hand-rendered effects are achieved by way of similarly unpredictable processes, and this 'darkroom-aesthetic' is readily seen throughout the textures and patterns of her compositions.
