“When experiencing heightened emotion, I see blurs of lush color in my peripheral vision,” San Francisco-based artist Heather Day recently said of her work. “Basically my mind interprets emotion as color. To me, it’s really there –as if I’m holding a colored filter over part of my vision. Looking straight ahead, my sight is unaffected but in the peripheries, there are rich washes of cyan, burnt orange, phthalo blues, and fuchsia.” These thoughts perfectly set-up what will be her newest solo show, The Hysterics, on view from October 19 through November 23, 2019, at Stephanie Chefas Projects in Portland.
