Landscapes in all dimensions
The German artist Ulrike Heydenreich (1975) is fascinated by maps and panoramic mountain landscapes. Her magical – and sometimes monumental – artworks express her desire for distant places. She records these vistas in drawing and objects, with collages and through folding techniques – or even a huge reflective kaleidoscope.
Heydenreich toys with perspective and illusion, the difference being that she fabricates rather than replicates the view and shows you what you don’t see. Time and again, Heydenreich designs, draws, folds or stitches a new and wondrous world of imaginary landscapes. Her art breathes infinity and silence: there is never a cloud in sight and rarely any people.
