Heine doesn’t interpret the world around her so much as she absorbs it, bringing it to life through the fulcrum of her arm, the tip of a wrist or the elegant scrawls that fly off her fingertips – Janet Goleas, Curator

“The investigative qualities of making art are what keeps me coming back. Art, for me, is born of connectivity and reference. My language is created through dialogue with perception as a tool, a physical and intuitive conversation, in which I find freedom and direction."


Since I was quite young,” Heine says. “I believed that painting is just a recording of that time and that moment. It’s about being very present, following an idea. Following an idea. Following an idea: showing a human being thinking a thought and just following it to the very end.” -- Priscilla Heine in conversation with Amei Wallach
