Artist Heather Craft
I build my work from observation and a desire to illustrate the human condition in portraiture and figurative painting. Silence speaks loudest in the slight turn of the head, a fleeting glance, a rounded back, slumping shoulders. I've explored different styles and different ways to use color, all with the goal of finding my voice and painting in a way that comes most naturally to me. Using black and white and limited color palettes has become the most powerful way I have to speak in my paintings. I love the variations of tone and intensity that I can achieve with simple black paint. I'm not a photographer, but my love of black and white photography is an inspiration to paint the way I do. Whether I am painting the human figure or a still life, I want to see, and I want the viewer to see those subjects in a different way.
