I use southwestern imagery and dreamlike abstraction to create emotive landscapes. My art is atmospheric and romantic and expresses what I cannot put into words. The open space within my work allows for the continuous renewal of meaning. As a process-based artist, I have found that art is extremely healing. The layers within the artworks reveal various stages of the painting process. I view my work as a series of personal narratives, a timeline for the experiences I embodied during the time of their creation.
You can find me on instagram @makenzie_heinemann or in the Painting Studio at ASU’s School of Art.
