www.heikebuelau.com Heike Buelau grew up in Bremen, Germany, where she was a singer and performer in the opera from a very early age. This has left it's indelible mark on her soul and subsequently her journey as a visual artist. When she decided to leave the music behind, photography came to her like a long lost love. It rescued her in a way and in no time she realized that she could continue her music on canvas. Her perception of sound, which has always been experienced mainly in the moments of silence, has translated into her predominantly minimalist work. She continuously experiments with empty space as a form of silence to give her viewer a much needed freedom of his/her own visual/emotional perceptions and experiences.
