Experimental Skyline

Experimental Skyline, watercolor, 16" x 20", 2003

Janet Heinicke is a native Midwesterner and a seasoned artist. She holds advanced degrees in printmaking from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and in painting from Northern Illinois University. She has a long history of work as a collegiate educator in Illinois and Iowa and most recently acted as the Fine Arts Exhibition Director for the Iowa State Fair.

Much of Heinicke's work focuses on close observation of the natural world, the forms found in rocks and trees, and long vistas that take in an expanse of hills and valleys. Scale, materials, surface, and texture are important to Heinicke. Experimental Skyline references an urban landscape, but her interest in scale and surface manifests itself in the juxtaposition of the abstract shapes in the foreground and the cityscape which sits behind them.
