Our good friend Heather McPherson is having her first solo show opening at Get This! Gallery in Atlanta next week. We say you will enjoy it and smile. Heather brings a soft sense to some of the everyday realities that we tend to ignore. Here is what she says about the work…
“houses, and the possibility of being able to know something about those who live inside by the cues on the outside, have often been the focus of my work. each house has an attribute that becomes the focus and gives us clues about the houses’ inhabitants: sheets hanging on a porch, a pile of logs, a boarded up window, an old car parked in front.
in these drawings, as in life, everything is not perfect. time passes, erodes the paint on a wall, rots the wood on a porch, but there’s beauty and truth in this imperfection. these drawing are of the everyday; the beauty of the passage of time and of people living.”
