J.J. L'Heureux: Faces From the Southern Ocean - Photographer, painter, adventurer and naturalist: these are the words that describe the artist J.J. L’Heureux. Ms. L’Heureux made her first trip to Antarctica in 2000 where she collected digital images of ice and snow for a white-on-white color field series of “landscape” paintings. During this expedition she became fascinated pristine environment, history and animals she discovered there. Returning to Antarctica each year, the Southern Ocean and the wind-swept setting of the vast, fragile, and icy wilderness became living models for her to capture on film. Her life’s work has to date resulted in two books and her work has been displayed in exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Ms. L’Heureux lives and works out of her studio in Venice, California | February 8 through April 26
