A Solo Exhibition

Artist Talk Feb 5, 2022

Domestic architecture and decoration have always been recurrent themes in Lorraine Heitzman’s mixed media paintings and installations. While her subjects are often architectural and represent the iconography of a range of buildings, her recent work has broadened to include imagery of personal memorabilia and interior spaces. Current influences include Pre-Renaissance painters, especially Giotto’s fanciful architecture within stark landscapes. Heitzman combines the artifice of his flat perspectives with those from fifteenth century paintings depicting idealized urban scenes, adding motifs from advertisements that were prominent in her childhood. All are reimagined through a contemporary sensibility, juxtaposing painted images with found materials.  At Home, A Personal Perspective celebrates architecture and interior design from a Los Angeles viewpoint, but one that seeks to find universality in the places we call home.
