Regina Heinz

BORN:
Born in Austria,

EDUCATION:
Heinz studied Fine Art and Ceramics in Vienna, then at Ecole Superieure d’Art, Geneva and Wimbledon School of Art and Goldsmith’s College, London.

SUBJECTS OF WORK:
Her work displays an organic and sensual quality, but is essentially abstract, dealing with form, volume, line and colour, . Soft slabs of clay are bent, manipulated and joined with mathematical sensibility to create precise but playful forms that are informed and inspired both by the mountainous landscapes of her native Austria and the urban geometry of the big city. "It is this tension between the hard and soft, the architectural and the organic, the abstract and the natural, which animates my work", Heinz comments. Geometric designs are incised and brushed on in vibrant ceramic colours to emphasise the underlying forms and to add depth and intensity to the coloured surface.
