The growth, changes and slight upheavals experienced in everyday life, are constant themes in Heidi Elise Wirz’s work. As diverse and separate we all are, as humans we have all experienced: joy, sorrow, pain, love, lust, and indifference. Wirz’s work takes a small magnifying glass to these vulnerabilities and insecurities.

Relationships and the importance of them comprises the narrative accompanying each piece. The line is often blurred between personal relationships and Wirz’s relation to the world around her. Environmental concerns and animal welfare issues are addressed in a soft, subversive manner. An often harder edged text statement compliments each piece, displaying Wirz’s love for typography.

Formally trained at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Wirz spent a great deal of her time painting graffiti in the surrounding area. A California native she now resides in Portland, OR with her son Cody and partner Krist. She has shown in group and solo shows all across the US, with plans to exhibit work in Europe in 2010.
