The McLean County Arts Center presents Heather Brammeier ’s exhibition Lose the Feeling in the Brandt Gallery June 17 – July 29, 2017. The free and public Reception will be on Friday, June 23, 5 - 7 pm.
Heather Brammeier is a painter and installation artist whose work explores the perception of flat planes versus dimension. For Lose the Feeling, her solo exhibition at the McLean County Arts Center, Brammeier has built a wood floor that hovers at an angle over the wood floor of the arts center gallery. The interplay of a tilted wood floor with the level surface of the gallery floor leads viewers to ask themselves questions about their perception of groundedness and spatial relationships. The title Lose the Feeling refers to the ways in which people suppress emotional experiences to suit the needs of others. The tilted false floor invites viewers to contrast the raw, splintered underside of the floor with the warm, polished façade. The floor becomes a metaphor for individuals’ tendencies to present a “front” to others while experiencing more complex, raw emotions within.
