Mary Heebner’s artistic practice is deeply grounded in place. Acknowledging the power of ancient presences and landscapes is integral to the creation of her paintings, collages, handmade-paper, photography, and artist’s books. Fragments, both literal and metaphoric, are also vital to her process. Through a parsing out and weaving together of fragments — of histories, stories, objects — people fashion narratives that are personal, collective, cultural, mythic. Revolving shapes within these ancient orbits define us, portend the past, and inform what may come. In Heebner’s work, the literal tearing apart and piecing together of fragments – paper and other materials – approximates this larger metonymic process that allows us to connect, to imagine, and to create anew.
