Heather Shimmen

The Ladies of the Pleiades

Heather Shimmen is a self-confessed hoarder of images, objects, ideas, and memories. Her densely formed linocut prints, pressed onto paper, collage, metal, and other surfaces, draw on the rich history of local anecdotes and ancient mythology.

The Ladies of the Pleiades calls forth the grandiose imagery of an opulent past, specifically through the story of the ‘Pleiades’ – the seven glamorous nymphs of Artemis.
