Heine’s approach is daring and intuitive. Her works are playful yet refined, and they command attention and intrigue. In Heine’s latest series, her varied forms and techniques, swirls and scratches, built-up clouded shapes, and threaded drips amalgamate to create delicately balanced, bold, and powerful organisms. Her organic, rich palette, coupled with her instinctive forms, absorb and engage the viewer.

“The investigative qualities of making art are what keeps me coming back. Art, for me, is born of connectivity and reference. My language is created through dialogue with perception as a tool, a physical and intuitive conversation, in which I find freedom and direction.

The world is devastating in its beauty and suffering. There is no perfection; only the messiness of life, and it’s eternal beauty, frail, and homely. As such, I strive to create objects that are homely and beautiful in their very flaws, with the driving force being the pulse of life’s underlying rhythms.”
Priscilla Heine, Artist Statement

“Priscilla Heine’s work speaks with intensity; the precision of her color fuels the vibration of her line. There is an atmosphere that evokes the unique union of Pollock’s rhythm and O’Keefe’s naked precision of tense calm. This invocation in her work serves to raise the possibility of going to a new realm, one concisely, absolutely aesthetic, a physical transcendence of meaning.”
– Rafael Courtoisie, Author

Heine doesn’t interpret the world around her so much as she absorbs it, bringing it to life through the fulcrum of her arm, the tip of a wrist or the elegant scrawls that fly off her fingertips” – Janet Goleas, Curator

“Over the past three decades, Priscilla Heine has developed a potent visual language that is as flexible as it is complex, allowing her to assimilate both the immediate world and the internal world that emanates from within. Drawing from both sources, Heine’s paintings are lyrical and romantic, and at the same time, they engage in a fierce dialogue with the present. Among dense tangles and strokes of pigment, bare linen, and swirls of charcoal, her imagery erupts before you as painterly moments coalesce to create a whole.” – Janet Goleas, Curator
