New OrleansHeidi Jung. Botanical
Added to list
Brought up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Heidi Jung 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 originally the emphasis of her arts degree before committing to drawing.
These hand-rendered effects are achieved by way of similarly unpredictable processes, and this ‘darkroom-aesthetic’ is readily seen throughout the textures and markings of her compositions.
