Product description

The Garden is an ongoing body of work depicting Heck’s wife and two young sons in a variety of richly colourful surrounds. The photographs draw upon Catholic iconography and other mythic pictorial traditions to develop a colour-based narrative evocative of spiritual archetypes and the processes of dissolution and rebirth. The series moves through a singular world-a fairytale in which figures and settings become tableaux for hyper-concentrated tonal arrangements. Images are composited and oversaturated with colour to create painterly and surreal compositions in which the familiar and fantastic are merged. Completing its aesthetic fantasy through lavish clothes, gestures of dreamlike poignancy, and an Edenic environment, The Garden expresses the supramundane innocence and spontaneity that art makes possible-a life lived in the direct, immediate experience of beauty.
