In this exhibition, Heller works on paper using complex selections of colour in pastels, gouache and charcoal to express form with decisive and considered mark making. Intense colours and hard marks are juxtaposed with gentle and fluid lines making Heller's interpretation of the figure both beautiful and intriguing. The majority of this show focuses on life drawings, figures without vanity or pretension. Heller's drawings although impressionistic have intense realism due to the solidity and weight that they express whether nudes or landscapes. The power of this body of work is its ability to convey innocence and honesty within sincere and natural expression. Rachel was born with Down's Syndrome but this has never stood in the way of her formidable powers of self-expression and her command of imagery and colour. Her work stands on its own as a body of endless inventive imagination and skill.
