Francesca Heinz – Werk

Taking inspiration from both historical and fictitious female characters Heinz is interested in how the female body can act as a visual vessel or a conduit in contemporary societies, often reflecting current tastes and political values. Her work aims to question this with tongue firmly in cheek. The use of latex as a substitute for skin means Heinz’s sculptural forms are often visually grotesque, lumpy and flaccid. The melding of human and animal forms is an essential component of her practice, often providing humour or absurdity but also speaking to greater ideas of ‘femininity’ and role-playing.
