Lost and Found
Works of Art by Heidi Kirkpatrick

Throughout Heidi Kirkpatrick’s career, her work has explored the female figure, family narratives and contemporary issues of being a woman. Her intent is to create works of art that are approachable in form and content and are interactive, yet fragile.
She uses photographs to transform found objects into pieces of art. Fusing transparent figurative and family portraits with books, boxes and tins, she creates a playful tension between imagery and object. Kirkpatrick’s work breathes new life into these objects, yet they leave hints of the past in their lovingly worn appearances.
Kirkpatrick lives with a substantial amount of physical pain and has for many years. In her continual search for an answer, as well as her way of dealing with the unexplained, she dissects her Gray’s Anatomy book. The pages find their way into her work, layered under images of those closest to the artist. The illustrations bind, clothe and wrap the body. Putting the inside on the outside, she wears her heart on her sleeve.

Kirkpatrick has exhibited widely over the last ten years and her work is held in numerous private and public collections including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; Springfield Museum of Art, Ohio; OHSU Corporate Collection, Portland, Oregon, and The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, Louisiana. Heidi was also selected for the Photolucida Critical Mass Top 50 in 2011, 2012, and 2013, and was awarded the solo show award by Hamidah Glasgow of The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado in 2012. Kirkpatrick is represented by G. Gibson Gallery, Seattle, Washington; Panopticon Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts; Wall Space Gallery, Santa Barbara, California and High Noon Culture in Beijing, China.

Vanishing Point, Exercises in Perspective
Curated by resident artist, Rachel Phillips

Vanishing Point: Exercises in Perspective by the Phantom Artists' League
Madge Cameron, Tabatha Christy, Frances Pane, Abe Rah-Kadabra and Will Fox
Curated by Rachel Phillips

For her Artist-in-Residency at RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco, Rachel Phillips acted as a curator and facilitator. She contacted the Phantom Artists’ League—a collective of usually invisible, you might even say dematerialized artists—and asked them to use the resources provided by RayKo during the residency to manifest work interpreting the theme “Vanishing Point.”
The result is a diverse mix of work—from photograms to 3D photographs and installation—that teases our conventions about what photography, and the ubiquitous Group Show, are. Says Phillips, “I had moments of panic while curating this show. I felt like I was herding cats, like my parameters were being completely ignored! But strangely, the more the project progressed, the more I could imagine that the work being made by these five artists could somehow be… my own.”
