The Hepworth Wakefield, UK, and Hammer Museum, LA, acquire works by Stefanie Heinze

Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is delighted to announce that works by Berlin based artist Stefanie Heinze have joined the collections of The Hepworth Wakefield, UK, and Hammer Museum, LA. Both works were part of Heinze's most recent solo exhibition, Stories of the Imaginary (self-portrait of two lemons), at the gallery earlier this year.


Parasol (STICK THER F BOI), 2021, acquired by The Hepworth Wakefield, UK, is part of Heinze's body of work that explores dualities, reflections and doubling in relation to constructions of selfhood.


Heinze's work, Untitled (Junks, Self-portrait as Bonechewer), Untitled (Conjunction of II), 2020, acquired by Hammer Museum, LA, is a strong example of one of her double sided drawings. Drawing is a crucial part of her practice, and integral to the development of her paintings. In these works, Heinze allows traces of the reverse to be visible through the translucency of the paper. She further fragments the image with her use of collage.
