New York based visual artist Heather Mewton’s work is dynamic and her art stretches across various realms. Although recognized for her film work and winning several awards, she is clearly not just limited to filmmaking.
Her photography, fashion and illustration are not only impressive, but incredibly unique. The California native is very vocal about how she wants her work to demonstrate a message.
In the exclusive video interview, she shares her perspective on being an artist in New York, her new work and where her inspiration comes from.
“Their work explores connections between identity, performance and emotion, often revolving around the feelings of discomfort and anxiety that arise to social conformance.”
Her short films such as ‘You-I ” and “Dreams and Stars” have a strong social message. “You-I” “revolves around a woman who struggle’s to maintain her identity as she becomes the face of the next step in artificial intelligence” and “Dreams and Stars” touches on a theme of perseverance.
