Home Decor: An Artistic Masterpiece
Artist Amanda Heise has built an entire exhibit out of home decor inspired the set-up displays at stores like Ikea.
Monday, May 3, 2010 17:29 GMTMUNSTER, Ind. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) The inside of your home could be considered art.
In her upcoming exhibit, Interiors, which begins May 14 at the Active Art Salon & Gallery in Munster, Indiana, artist Amanda Heise will explore the idea of homes and rooms with multimedia art pieces featuring household items like wood, tile, and countertop scraps.
Heise was inspired by store displays of fake rooms not unlike those seen at Ikea, calling them an oversized dollhouse with endless possibilities for fun, adventure, and make-believe play.
She uses household materials as movable pieces in her work so theyre interactive, just like the store displays she so loves and visits.
Heise admits its a little ironic to create a generic living space, but she feels its important to pay homage to the idea of home, space, and family, especially her own.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
