Days May Be Cloudy Or Sunny

by Heather Wilcoxon SOURCE CURATED

Artists have the freedom to express themselves in many ways and mediums. They constantly alter and revise the work as they move along, but very rarely do they edit their intended message. Heather Wilcoxon is one of those unique artists that manage to provide you with a look at the sunny and bright side of their point of view while coercing you to take a deeper, sometimes gloomier, look at the same piece.

One of six new exhibitions opening on January 25, 2011 at the Katzen Arts Center, The Dark and Humourous Mind of Heather Wilcoxon shows some real promise.

Heather Wilcoxon brings a San Francisco Bay area perspective to her seemingly whimsical but politically-charged paintings that express the humor, fear, absurdity and brutality of the human race. Always inspired by environmental issues, Wilcoxon’s newest series, Sludge Drawings, is a grouping of haunting images that document her response to the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The exhibition will run through March 13, 2011.
