Apples with Butterfly
Depictions of apple trees recur in Heyer's work. They are pillars of his surreal and immersive universe. In this painting, the single gesture of re-envisioning an apple’s familiar color to blue creates a new and exuberant plane of experience.
② Represented by:
Paul Heyer employs a lexicon of skeletons, blue apples and other natural elements to explore how imagination shapes our lived experience. He shows viewers new ways of seeing our world, while asking what kind of future we want to craft. Heyer’s hyper-saturated paintings recall symbolist and surrealist traditions, while embracing a queer perspective that challenges conventional boundaries.
