Exhibit Title: Natural Reflections
Exhibit: June 5th – July 1st, 2019
The June show featuring Heather deViveiros will feature new pieces of nature-inspired works in acrylic and iridescent paints and mixed media. deViveiros’ pieces mix realism and flat decorative designs, sometimes featuring animal images dynamically contrasting or blending with her landscapes.
deViveiros comments on her creative process saying, “I am always searching for a new angle or perspective and exploring the blend of different elements and materials to push the perspective of realism and flat decorative work. I am intrigued by the synthesis of different elements. By using my own hand carved rubber stamps, acrylic paint and paint pens, I attempt to bring these elements together to create a dynamic interaction. In many of my pieces I use iridescent paint in the background to create a dramatic effect with natural refractions.”
About the Artist
Heather deViveiros was born and raised in Northern California as an only child of artist parents. Her father taught drawing and painting for 20 years at CCAC (California College or Arts and Crafts) in Oakland. Heather grew up exposed to a wide variety of materials and possibilities, the views, ideas and philosophies of her parents’ artist friends, and an open attitude toward art as a way of life. Her parents encouraged the exploration of creative expression and made different mediums available to her. She dabbled and explored and learned by doing.
