Join Heidi Brandow for the opening reception of New Works, the Santa Fe-based artist's first solo show at form & concept gallery.
Hailing from a long line of Native Hawaiian singers, musicians and performers on her mother’s side and Diné storytellers and medicine people on her father’s side, Brandow's artistic career came naturally. The artist draws inspiration from everyday life and international travels, distilling a myriad of cultural influences into powerful—yet playful—creations. By questioning authority and deconstructing mainstream assumptions of Native Americans, Brandow’s work concerns discovering, defining, and redefining personal identity.
Brandow's paintings are a part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chatanooga, Tennessee, and the Luciano Benetton Collection in Italy. She is a featured artist in the School of Advanced Research (SAR) publication “Art in Our Lives: Native Artist Women in Dialogue. Heidi K. Brandow is a graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA and has studied design at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in Cambridge, Massachusetts and Istanbul Technical University in Istanbul, Turkey.
