About Heather MacDonald

At the center of my practice is an autobiographical study of identity, sexuality, and gender. This is explored using collage, printmaking, and sculpture. Using an already existing object, such as a playing card or my own body, I am interested in re- interpreting images in order to change their original meaning. This editorial process enables me to challenge the viewer’s already existing ideals and norms.
