Artist Statement

Known for her innovative, textile-based methods, Heslin’s work considers modern histories of painting and social aspects of the medium regarding gender and labor. Her work, including fabric, ink, collage, thread, and sculptural elements, engages with material conversations connected through medium crossovers. Heslin pushes the limits of painting; it’s definitions, classifications and hierarchies, disrupting medium-based expectations.
