April 2006: Patricia Heimerl Photographs
Patricia Heimerl will be exploring manipulated imagery in her "Symmetry Series". Her photographs are digitally enhanced and rearranged. She works with a photo to construct "forced" symmetries, recreating and enhancing them to invent the intriguing images. As to her subject matter, "Anything is fair game" says Heimerl. "What draws me to a subject is the potential to turn it into something more than what immediately meets the eye." She strives to incorporate an element of discovery into her artwork by surprising the viewer with a shape or figure within one of the symmetrical images, questioning the source of the abstracted image. Some of her photographs are quite large; the largest being 45"X 35".
