Heidi Lefebvre is an artist whose playful exploration of everyday life gives expression to her curious nature. The strange relationships between the objects in her drawings speaks about her questioning their place and importance. She invests these things and places with gravity. But it is a weird kind of story that she tells.

INFORMATION

The objects and the environments are based on a real thing or place but then I leave that behind as I draw. A coat manifests into a feeling. A bogeyman. A wise ass on a street corner. An old bag becomes a head.

The moment when things are poignant never lasts. Like glimpses when a torch light shines on the cave roof. I like to jump out into the open space of the drawing.

Sometimes the movement of the pencil echoes the texture of the fabric, a smooth line; a fluid cloth. a tight mark; a small stitch. The sensations are connected and the visual experience of the drawing mimics the actual object from life. But it's the action that expresses the connection. Like a weird dance of the hands? The ideas, objects and the dance are reaching out.
