Joining Oeno Gallery this summer is Ottawa artist, Heidi Conrod. We are incredibly proud to welcome her to our talented roster of artists. Check out her series of neon line paintings which Conrod calls, ‘The Charged Line’, in which she adds a hand-molded electric neon tube to explore the dynamic relationship between light and space.
These compelling abstract pieces light up the room and interact with the other art.
Book your appointment now to see these paintings in person, call us directly 613-393-2216.
Ottawa-based artist Heidi Conrod draws inspiration from a wide-range of sources, spanning from science, literature, nature and philosophy, to Abstract Expressionism and Surrealism. Conrod's work joins together painting and drawing, abstraction and representation, in intuitive and improvisational ways. Through the act of layering, forms and shapes are multiplied by superimposing, and the space of the canvas expanded. Her works develop over an extended period of time, and define themselves through the process of emergence. Her work explores the nature of direct visual experience, one that involves infinite movement and thought.
Heidi Conrod was born in 1970 in Montreal and currently lives and works in Ottawa. She has had solo exhibitions at Katherine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects (Toronto), Studio 21(Halifax), Trunk Gallery (Vancouver), Wall Space Gallery (Ottawa), Karsh-Masson Gallery (Ottawa), Ottawa Art Gallery Annex (Ottawa). Her work has also been exhibited in various group exhibitions including Herringer-Kiss Gallery (Calgary), The Ottawa School of Art (Ottawa), Art Ventures (Palo Alto, California). She received her MFA at the University of Ottawa in 2016, and BSc (Biology) in 1994. Her work can be found in numerous private and public collections in Canada and worldwide
“Harmony and tension play equal roles; the lights appear at once graceful, balanced additions, whilst simultaneously acting to divide the physical space and alter perceptions of colour and form.” - Heidi Conrod
