An Artist’s Trip to Baghdad
New works by Andrew Heine
Ten years ago, I served with the US Marines during the initial invasion of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The impact has been reflected in my work ever since. For this opening, I will showcase work that highlights how my art has evolved over time and will also display pieces using found objects that I brought back with me from Iraq. The tone of the work reflects the silent observatory nature of the artist compounded with the violent chaos of combat that can make the rationalization of a situation impossible. ~Andrew Heine
