A renowned self portraiture artist, with a distinct tangent for the abstraction of feeling and hence expression on the outside, in perhaps the 'nearest best fit of nature' if I may pick a phrase in humble interpretation, Heffernan is willing to show herself in some intimate and telling fantasy, which leads us in many directions of thought.
Perhaps in some pictures, where the feminine is changed to masculine, the feeble and immature element within gives way to sensations of vulnerability and anxiety, mixed with freshness and willingness to be.
Nature is evident as a major influence in the work of Julie Hefferrnan, and the ideals of climate protection and conservation, symbols of fruiting trees sprouting from the inner belly, manifestations of motion and thought like dreamy landscapes - are bejewelled by the sheer quality of detail.
