Description


With her latest body of work, The Parallel Series, Kelly Heaton has created an immersive experience of sight, sound, and soul within a painterly context. Countering two platitudes in parallel, “Painting is dead” and “God is dead,” Heaton’s new images literally come to life with the pulsing, chirping, and breathing of the natural world that surrounds her in rural Virginia: a simmering fire, a rainy spring forest, insects on a summer night, a beating heart, the cry of a lonesome bird. None of the effects are recordings. Analog electronic circuits, designed by Heaton to generate this audio-visual show, adhere to the paintings’ surfaces. Form, function, and content are integrated into highly original compositions of The Parallel Series.
