Regina Heinz

Regina Heinz is best known for the ‘pillow’ forms she creates as individual abstract sculptures or as part of a wall panel series. Inspired by the mountainous landscape of her home country, Austria, and constructed from soft slabs of clay, Regina Heinz’s pieces display an organic and sensual quality. Reminiscent both of the intimacy of a body and the flowing lines of a landscape, her work, equally, can be seen as purely abstract – dealing with form, volume, line and colour. Precisely constructed forms echo geometric designs, which are painted on in vibrant colours and contrast with the soft clay surfaces. “It is this tension between hard and soft, the architectural and the organic, the abstract and the natural, which animates my work.” Regina’s demonstration will reveal her special slab building technique, which emphasises the softness and tactile qualities of clay.
