Lives in Vancouver, BC
Heather Craig’s practice engages the culture that we inhabit, with an emphasis on understanding loss. This drive arises from many years of experience as a nurse, and also from personal experience. For Craig, life’s biggest test is to manage the losses that come our way and for that reason her work often deals with the process of grief. At the same time, she has an appreciation of the joyful and whimsical aspects of life. For Craig, the materiality of paint is inextricably bound with meaning. She takes colours and simple signs, and paints, allowing her work to take on a presence and authority of its own.
