Fireworks 1

Red Rose

Georgia O'Keeffe once said: "Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small. We haven't time - and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time." Of course, she then went on to make flowers the subject of a series of her paintings, and suddenly they took on a whole new importance. Using the camera, artist Heather Barker has taken this approach to capture the spontaneity of nature, as in Bee. In her works, she exposes an entire community of creatures that exist around us, but that we may seldom observe. Expertly crafting her pieces through inspired composition, foreground/background relationships and natural lighting, she boldly focuses the viewer's eye at precisely the point of intrigue. Simultaneously, she leaves us wondering, is her focus the flower or the bee? In Fireworks 1, is it the fireworks, or the tree the light exposes?

Heather earned her bachelor of arts degree from Trent University, her diploma of architectural conservation from Heriott-Watt University, Edinburgh,
Scotland, her diploma of fine arts with honors from the Ontario College of Art and Design, and took further training in photography at George Brown College and with Freeman Patterson.
