Heidi Kirkpatrick is a fine art photographer and educator based in Portland, Oregon.
Throughout Kirkpatrick’s career her work has explored the female figure, family narratives and contemporary issues of being a woman. Kirkpatrick combines film positives with found objects such as vintage children’s blocks, books, mahjong tiles, and tins, to create intimate photo-based objects that explore themes of family, history, love and loss. During the Oregon summers, Heidi makes cyanotypes in her backyard studio that address similar issues. Kirkpatrick creates unique cyanotype works with vintage clothing and linens using personal possessions and specimens from her garden.
Kirkpatrick has exhibited widely over the last twenty years and her work is held in numerous private and public collections including The Fox Talbot Museum, Wiltshire, United Kingdom; The Harry Ransom Center, Austin, Texas; Portland Art Museum, Portland, Oregon; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; Springfield Museum of Art, Springfield, Ohio; The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, Louisiana; Denver Art Museum, Denver, Colorado; OHSU Corporate Collection, Portland, Oregon. Heidi was selected for the Photolucida Critical Mass Top 50 in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, and was recognized with the solo show award in 2012. Heidi’s work was also selected for LensCulture Emerging Talent Awards Top 50 in 2014.
Kirkpatrick is represented by G. Gibson Gallery, Seattle, Washington and Dina Mitrani Gallery, Miami, Florida.
