The Garden - Erik Madigan Heck

Dufourstrasse 31 
8008 Zurich


Christophe Guye Galerie presents Erik Madigan Heck’s second solo exhibition The Garden at the gallery. The Garden is an ongoing body of work depicting primarily Heck’s family in a variety of richly colorful surroundings. The photographs draw upon diverse sacred and mythical pictorial traditions to develop a color-based narrative that pushes the aesthetic possibilities of a photograph. The exhibition at the gallery focuses on works at the intersection between photography and painting. These works highlight the artist’s relationship with color, which stems from a life-long love affair with painting. ‘For me painting was always more about the color,’ he says. ‘And I think that’s where my photography crosses over; how you can push color in a way that a painter can with a brush.’
