i see water – new works by Colleen Heslin at LES Gallery May 28th

I See Water is a comical take on landscape painting and contemporary lifestyles. Colleen Heslin looks at water as an object, destination, or means towards a destination and our attraction and romanticization of these sites in modern society. This body of work stems from historical painting as a documentary means to capture vernacular moments in time and space while playing with common motifs in contemporary snapshot photography. Whimsical and ambiguous gestures are prominent; a splash in a river, or a concealed hump on a couch hint towards a narrative subtext while selected objects shape and inform notions of identity and relationships within modern interiors and exterior rural environments.
