Heather Patterson is an American artist from Colorado and is known for her special and colorful work. She combines different patterns, materials and shapes which establish different colorful worlds. “My work is an intuitive gathering of imagery stemming from both the natural and built environments. I recreate geographic patterns and forms, and then layer them to make up new series of systemic landscapes. By analyzing the biological and structural phenomena, I find similarities between their elements. For example: The way a topographical map echoes grain of wood, or how gnarled tree branches are reminiscent of the intertwining veins in a human body, or how computer generated charts can resemble mutating microscopic cells. I am interested in how the imperfections and complete randomness in nature are in direct contrast with the stenciled man-made environment. This overlapping of surfaces is forever changing and often mutating into one.”
