Heather C. MacRae began her explorations in painting searching to understand the figure as the subject but also the figure’s relationship to the environment.  This grew into paintings that sought to identify the entanglements of human life and the concept of environment. In an on going series she uses these identified facets of visual information to understand the tension and balance found in the urban/suburban landscape. MacRae’s latest works in both the “build and “pedal” series have returned to the exploration of the figure, our connection to the figure as a structure and the concepts surrounding our relationships to one another.
