 The artist Heike Metz

 For Heike Metz, "home in the distance" is a fundamental principle of her artistic expressions. Concepts such as nature, home and homeland therefore run like a red thread through the work process. Her architectures resemble artistic creations of the imagination with an almost inexhaustible supply of forms. Her choice of motifs is rooted on the one hand in real cityscapes, which she realises in commissioned city models, and on the other hand in holiday memories, in that she creates characteristic houses, churches and monasteries as architectural quotations. The relationship between her and her surroundings is a metaphor for the dialogue between "man and space". Drawing from the subconscious is a mainstay of her work and her symbolic formal language. In doing so, she defines a spiritual or inner home for herself, which does not necessarily describe a specific place.

 Andrea Brandl

Director of the Kunsthalle Schweinfurt
