Megan Heeres

Megan experiments with matters of tending, time, chance and place. She begins each work by constructing controlled environments in which materials act as they may. The materials; plaster, ink, slip and latex paint, sound-responsive lights to fabric, plants, handmade paper pulp and found motors; perform actions specific to their physicality and leave marks or residues as they move. These actions and marks then inform the final work’s formal qualities and conceptual nature.

In Community: Reflect, Respond, Act

I am grateful to live in Detroit – during this current moment. A place and a people that has endured so much already, but also a place that persists despite it all. I am humbled by the strength, generosity, rage, creativity, patience, love, and pride that I witness here on a daily basis. –Megan Heeres
