Heather Harvey, Installation and Sculpture Artist, Chestertown, MD

Heather Harvey creates site-specific installations and sculptural paintings that straddle traditional boundaries between painting, drawing and sculpture. She is interested in hidden infrastructures and invisible ordering mechanisms — things like gravity, quantum physics, and radio waves, but also the human body, memory, and contradictory emotions like aversion and affection. Her work is suggestive of mental and emotional landscapes and internal, private, unfolding thought processes. Harvey exploits materials’ inherent qualities to see what they are physically capable of doing and what metaphors they can carry.
