Heather Capen| Urban Light
We are thrilled to announce Urban Light, a solo exhibition by contemporary San Francisco based artist Heather Capen. In Capen’s latest body of work, she dives into the urban landscapes of San Francisco, capturing the true essence of a living city.
"My paintings reflect my interest in the built environment, and the interplay between city life, nature and infrastructure. My work is greatly influenced by my career as a landscape architect, where I learned to appreciate the overlap of history, topography, cultures, and nature that occurs in an urban environment. Responding to certain sites that might otherwise be overlooked, whether old streetcars, the urban street, or sweets in window displays, I want to capture the colors, patterns, repetition of these sites as well as the explore of the cultural diversity in urban life. My paintings are a reflection on the underlying beauty of the places we see, and often don’t see, in our world."
