Justice through Connection

Kim Vanderheiden’s recent visual art and writings have focused on the nature of the U.S. Justice System, sharing a vision of how it can further evolve towards a restorative role based on love. This work has been displayed in solo exhibitions at local institutions, including Dominican University, Contra Costa College, and the Alameda County Law Library, and recently featured in the Marin Independent Journal, and by the Project for Integrating Spirituality Law and Politics.

Vanderheiden is especially interested in the connections among beings, the underlying mysteries of those relationships, and the ways they turn up physically in the larger conflicts of our society. Her visual style is influenced by poetry, mythology, world cultures, religious writings, illuminated manuscripts, book arts, graffiti, cityscapes, and activist art.

Her media typically include drawing, painting, and various printmaking forms on paper collage. She respects the disparate nature of the media as she unites them organically into a whole, synthesizing the outward fragmentation into an underlying unity.
