Geomorphology is printmaker Heather McMordie’s source of imagery and guide to process.
Just as a landscape changes through the erosion and deposition of the same material, her work is a slow morphology of the same ideas and imagery revisited again and again. Printmaking matrices become subjects for drawings and failed editions are later pieced together into new successes. Slowly evolving and self-referential, Heather’s process mimics water over stone. Caught in a steady and unrelenting current, textures and colors tumble against each other and and slowly re-shape one another.
