Salz und Asche

Der Raum Düsseldorf Germany

June 6 – June 9, 2019

“Salz und Asche” is Heinser’s first exhibition in Düsseldorf and includes recent and past California aerial observations of San Francisco Bay Area’s rare salt evaporation ponds, landscapes transformed by recent fires throughout the state, and beloved coastlines of Sonoma and Marin counties. Heinser’s photographs are reminiscent of non-representational oil paintings. The images have a beguiling beauty but it is a beauty that is disturbed. Man’s interference in the ecosystem has left deep wounds and scars on California’s landscapes.
