LA Louver Exhibition: Heather Gwen Martin - Nerve Lines and Fever Dreams
Name: LA Louver Exhibition: Heather Gwen Martin - Nerve Lines and Fever Dreams
Date: May 24, 2021 - July 2, 2021
L.A. Louver is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Heather Gwen Martin, featuring abstract oil paintings in a variety of sizes, and a series of intimate gouache on paper in saturated tones.
The paintings in Nerve Lines and Fever Dreams were made during this strange pandemic period and reflect the lockdown-heightened awareness of both the body in the world and the mind in the body. These dueling physical and metaphysical concerns create a pushpull of compositional energy: Martin’s rich colors ignite the mind, while organic forms and lines encourage an embodied, dancing sort of viewing — quick, and then slow. Ideas that begin as subconscious stories via dreams and sense memories are communicated through the bodily act of painting.
