I saw Julie Heffernan's new work in Mark Moore's booth in Miami 6 months ago. I was immediately enraptured, and stood in front of it for a long time, thinking, "I know this painter, but....", and then realized it was hers. This interview reveals that she uses image streaming as part of her creative process. I have always loved her work, but this new direction is so rich and layered, chock full of art historical references, but socially conscious without being heavy handed & relevant to our time.
