Artist Information for Heather Dubreuil
Beginning with photos of the urban landscape, I transform an everyday exterior through the expressive potential of colour. I create sensuous, aesthetic delight by a careful consideration of form and composition.
I am intrigued by the interlocking shapes of buildings, by the grids of windows and doors, and by the variety of architectural style. I like the way that strong verticals and diagonals are built right into these street views.
Aware of the culture of needlework and its history as a vehicle for women’s self-expression, I participate in the contemporary embodiment of this tradition, working primarily with my hand-dyed cotton and stitch.Images scroll down to view all
