The "Sanitized..." Project
The work in this exhibition consists of hand-colored linocut prints, combined with low-relief sculpture. The prints use "found" images, printed on Japanese paper and overlapped. The primary image, inspiring the show title, is taken from a 3 1/2 by 8 inch drinking glass cover of the type found in American motels in the mid-1900's.

Do your teeth miss the taste of the sky...?
Heidi Neubauer-Winterburn's work transmutes found materials and non-traditional arts supplies, like bones and mylar, into singular objects and ideas.
For the show "Do your teeth miss the taste of the sky...?" she presents work from two current series: "Clouds" and "Bones." In the series "Clouds," she continues her experiments and explorations with mylar and interactive inflatables, as well as showing a new installation. The series "Bones" includes photographs and wall sculptures created from found objects—often bones— among other everyday items and more common craft supplies such as yarn, flock, and pastels.
The two series join to create and question the sublime to subtle details of life: growth and decay, highs and lows, and the vibrant space between the seen and the unseen.

I AM MUSIC
Each ceramic sculpture explores the endless possibilities of paper clay. Using a slab construction, I play with its flexibility and lightness, infusing each piece with energy and fluid gestures. Textures and color treatments add another dynamic to their development, giving each figure a unique character. Exuberance! Pathos. Tranquility. Hundreds of emotions are evoked by the sounds of music we experience internally or externally and surprisingly, felt in similar ways by people from completely different cultures. My "all female ensemble" captures many moods of this universal language, emphasizing how music is an essential part of being human.

You open the in-flight magazine to discover odd bits and pieces of imagery ripped away, missing. There's a hole in the newspaper. And the cereal box won’t close—one of the flaps is gone. I confess: I couldn’t help myself. I’ve salvaged a compelling fragment to inspire (or add to) another collage composition.
Paper leads, I follow. Collected ingredients bring inherent energy and potential. In time, with patience, the paper trail leads to unexpected destinations. Rearranged reality, assembled moments, and constructed views materialize in the collages. The work always, somewhat inexplicably, reflects and informs my creative growth / life journey.

Endless Horizon: 14000 feet to Sea Level
In April 2015 I came to New Zealand fully intending to return to my home in Colorado by mid May. It came as a surprise to friends and family, and mostly to myself, when I impulsively decided to stay on after being in New Zealand only 3 weeks.
I fell in love. Both with the landscape and with a kiwi guy.
Setting up a studio near Wellington, I began to capture my experience with fabric and thread by early June. The abstract textile paintings in this exhibit explore the endless horizon of the ubiquitous New Zealand sea and its relationship to the expansive sky of Colorado.
Standing at the top of a mountain in the Rockies or gazing out at the ocean in New Zealand - I can see forever. So I look and wonder - what will the future be?
