hjHeidi Jung

Brought up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Heidi Jung has naturally been drawn to a subject matter most timeless and familiar to her. Through draftsmanship and technique acquired over the years in both college and career, she has brought an extraordinary and authentic approach to drawing. The ethereal effects she achieves with inks, charcoal, erasure and grattage might remind the viewer of the spontaneity of darkroom photography; indeed, photography was the formal emphasis of her arts degree. These hand-rendered effects are achieved by way of similarly unpredictable processes, and this 'darkroom-aesthetic' is readily seen throughout the textures and patterns of her compositions.

In the works for “Analog” Roberts-Gray begins by sandblasting and etching a pattern into the surface of the plexiglass. He continues by printing a CPU diagram on the sheet, dripping, doping, and painting a historically based landscape on it in acrylic. In many steps involving both sides of the plexiglass sheet he may add and remove materiel. From there then artist finds the pulse of work, its title, and its resolution.
