ARTIST STATEMENT
Face the facts: my truth is different from yours. When you are bombarded every day from every direction with questions and statements that lessen your worth as a woman, question your judgement, undermine your experiences, and collectively make the very loud statement that what I say and experience matters far less than how I look and what men think, then yes, your tired little "joke" hurts. Your words inflict harm, no matter how harmless your intent.
Pay attention. Pay respect. You need not agree with me to accept that what I say about my own experience has as much validity as what you say about your own.
My truth is that it is mine and not yours. And that is a fact.

ARTIST BIO
Heather Keith Freeman has been painting ever since she was old enough to hold a brush, on every available surface. Her work explores the anthromorphization of abstract concepts with vivid use of light and shadow, often combined with text to make profound statements about the hidden qualities of our culture. Social justice in all its manifestations is very important to her work, from the combating of racism and sexism to disability rights and size acceptance. She seeks to communicate that which lives in the space between word and image by the use of both in tandem, and the challenging of subconscious stereotypes and assumptions.
