Hollis Heichemer’s paintings capture transcendent experiences with nature, encounters which are fleeting, transformative and unexpected.
Heichemer often runs through the New Hampshire woods surrounding her studio and returns with memories of what she describes as ridiculously beautiful moments, which she expresses intuitively in paint.
Attuned to changes in seasons and environment, in the rhythms of the natural world she finds something greater than ourselves.
Hollis Heichemer was born in Binghamton, New York in 1963 and lives and works in New Hampshire. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Gross McCleaf Gallery and Rosenfeld Gallery in Philadelphia and both Hollis Taggart and J. Cacciola Gallery in New York. She’s participated in a wide range of group exhibitions, including most recently at Stanek Gallery in Philadelphia and Dolby Chadwick Gallery in San Francisco. She received her BS from the Ohio University and her MA at Seton Hall University.
