Artist Bio

 

 

Heather Rivera was born in Port Jefferson, NY in 1977. She has managed to break the photographer's mold by learning techniques on her own, and never being formally trained. Her self-taught photography has been regarded as daring, bold, and innovative by others in the photography world. Heather has a keen eye for what other people often see as mundane situations and puts a new twist on the everyday norm. Her conceptual art is often dark, full of emotions and truly makes the viewer rethink their initial reactions.

Heather has studied Philosophy with a specialty in Philosophy through Film, Evil, Metaphysics and Aesthetics for the past five years. She has been invited to guest lecture at Suffolk County Community College regarding "Jean Baudrillard in relation to Art" and "Descartes as he relates to the film Inception". In addition to having her Philosophical discoveries through the media of films published in "Philosophy Now" magazine (Alice and Wonderland a philosophical view and Inception meets Philosophy), she has been invited to deliver papers at professional philosophy conferences (Long Island Philosophical Society). 

Her photographic work entitled “Hemispheres” was selected to be exhibited at Gallery 1650 in California for their December 2012 “Flower Power” exhibition.

Heather has been selected to exhibit at Tokarska Gallery in London for the February 2013 "CiTies: All Dimensions" Exhibition with her photographic work depicting the streets of Manhattan, NY. 

Heather was selected to exhibit at 1650 Gallery in Los Angles in April of 2013 for the "Up Close and Personal 2013" exhibit, with her works "Having a Ball" and "Little Worlds" showcasing her macro photography. 

Global Art League will be having an exhibition from July 20th - Aug 17th, 2013; which Heather will have her work featured at The Montreal Art Centre.  The works on display will be "Morning Fix", 'Hemispheres" "The Magical Lemon" and 'The King is Dead, Long Live the King!"

In May of 2014 Heather will be exhibing with Altered Esthetics for the "Kinetic Asthetics" Exhibit in Minnesota. 

She lives in NY, on Long Island.
