Ive yet to put them in a stylistic category, explains Jung. Theyre representational and theyre not; theres a looseness to them. My idols are Motherwell and Dine. The series Im focusing on right now is based on images from a 70s houseplant book. Ive been working on the series for a while, and in the process, Ive tried to become an expert on plants.
Gallery director Sellars is enraptured by Jungs work. A lot of people believe that Heidis pieces are either complex renditions of nature or a discussion on the fading of beauty, muses Sellars. But I think the truth, as always, lies somewhere in the middle. Personally, I see them as representing the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi. Her pieces exude imperfection, impermanence and transience in a nice way, of course and while aesthetically, each piece offers its own form of beauty, they also radiate sadness and a longing for more.
