Heather Hart

Heather Hart is interested in how legends form and how invention and intuition gets mixed in along the way to fit current cultural needs. She thinks of her artwork as oracles that reflect these stories and belief systems. As Ms. Hart explains, “an oracle is something that gives wisdom or truth. Instead of praying to a relic that someone else has infused with power, I want to flip the power and responsibility and create artwork for reclamation.”

Harpo Foundation is pleased to provide Ms. Hart with a direct artist grant to assist her production and development of new work.
