Heike Wähner has been looking for a modern visual language since the beginning of her career to express social and personal themes. In the series she has developed, she looks for a new aesthetic to express classic themes such as doubt, despair, sadness and courage.
By deduction and the creation of order from chaos, it brings forms back to geometric essential meaning. Complex chaotic themes and emotions with a high entropy are brought back to a low entropic visual system.

To visualize these transitions between different states, she has developed both dynamic series (A state between this and that 1-6) and static series (The Portait series). Currently she is working on the further completion of these series and she has new series on the program for 2017-2018.
Heike Wähner's work is not pleasing because of form and the abstract layering of the visual geometric language. But is often seen as a monumental counter-reflection of the zeitgeist of fleeting emotions.

Elaine Vis about Heike Wahner:
"Heike creates order and deduces. She makes installations in which she transforms emotions into abstract work.


Is the educational platform on which Heike Wahner brings art education to children from all kinds of backgrounds.
