Opening Reception | Heidi Conrod: Magic Mirrors

MAGIC MIRRORS
Heidi Conrod’s mixed media artwork draws upon an essence of liminality, a state of “in-betweenness.” Created using a combination of hand-applied paint and digitally-manipulated imagery, Conrod’s fantastical artworks extend an invitation to the viewer to a space betwixt eras, media, and style. Much like the sense of nostalgia and the interactive sensorial stimulation of a carnival or fair, Conrod’s “magic mirrors” mix vintage found imagery and paint within a digital process to engage the viewer. Playful figurative images pull the observer into an imagined time within the mid-twentieth century, while the minimal and colourful painted strokes maintain a sense of the present
