Heather Patterson

Patterson focuses on human impact on the environment, her work is a documentation of the forever changing elements in the natural topography of our landscape.  She recreates geographic patterns that she finds, and then layers them to make up a new series of abstracted terrain.  This morphing of forms combines imagery such as computer generated weather systems, topographic map lines, animal migration patterns, cellular structures, networking graphs, water movement patterns, lichen on boulders, rock formations, and other natural phenomena. She is interested in the constant recurrence of these patterns and find similarities in their elements. The intertwining of the geometric and organic forms becomes an important part of her process. We are constantly building and evolving with technology, yet we are craving the natural world at the same time. The transformation of the environment and the effects of climate change deeply influence her work.
