Vicktoria Mara Heilweil

August 10-September 8, 2018
Receptions: August 10 • 5–8pm

Drop is a meditation on water. The patterns in these images echo my experience of standing at the water’s edge, recording the effects of wind and light upon the surface of the liquid. They demonstrate a moment frozen in time using a fast shutter speed, which reveals the markings and patterns. Because we live in time, we are unable examine these intricate nuances without the use of photography. The camera captures a single fleeting moment that can never be repeated. What appears is a serendipitous surprise to me.  

I began this series with the idea of transforming a familiar, commonplace element from its literal representation into something poetic. The images expose the hidden, mystical features of an otherwise ordinary substance.
