"Delta": A Fine Mix
June 16, 2016
By Leslie Newell Peacock
"The "Delta Exhibition," the Arkansas Arts Center's annual showcase of art being made in our middle part of the country, is deep in its offerings of good works this year...
...University of Arkansas at Little Rock artist in residence Heidi Hogden's masterful and enormous pencil drawing of a tangle of vines, which is combined with tree stumps of concrete ("Detached"), is another high-caliber work."

Briefly describe the work that you do.
My recent body of work consists of a series of graphite drawings on paper that investigate the area around my childhood home in the township of Franklin, Wisconsin. Each drawing presents a unique interpretation of the land. The imagery for my drawings are inspired by direct observational experience, memory, and photographic source material (including images from digital motion cameras used for hunting). Through the process of drawing, I revisit the landscape of my childhood as it was, as it is and as I imagine it to be. My subjects range from the intimacy of a found bird’s nest to broader landscape scenes of life-size animals and humans.
At what point in your life did you decide to become an artist?
Art was ingrained in me. As a child, I participated in the art classes my mother taught out of our home. I filled with excitement every time I learned a particular drawing or painting technique during a lesson. The classes also meant that there were artists coming into our home and getting excited about their artwork. I had experiences creating, thinking, and talking about art alongside these creative people. From a young age, I knew that I wanted to be an artist and teacher. This drive has lead me to where I am today.
Tell us a little about your background and how that influences you as an artist.
I have always had a fascination with the land and environment. From outdoor activities, to painting outdoors, or helping my father plant trees, the land has been an essential source of passion and inspiration for me. What I did not realize until moving to Boston was how important the specific land in Wisconsin is to me. My memories, ideas, and my emotions were connected to this specific place. As research for this body of work, I visited my home in Wisconsin, photographed the land, and communicated with my family about their attachment to our farm, their hunting rituals, and the animals on the land.
What types of conceptual concerns are present in your work? How do those relate to the specific process(es) or media you use?
This work has enabled me to express my own personal narrative as well as reflect on what ‘home’ means and how it is linked to specific ideas of place. Each drawing interweaves the present moment mixed with a somber meditation on the past. My memories of home are full of nostalgia, something I have tried to imbue in these works.
We once heard Chuck Close say he did not believe in being inspired, rather in working hard everyday. What motivates you in your studio practice?
Sometimes a single work will take months to complete because of it’s scale and/or detail. In my studio, I draw and write about my work, while trying to maintain my patience. I try to not get distracted while I am drawing and often listen to the constant buzzing of the tv or radio in the background to stay focused. I take a photo of the progress of my drawing at the end of each day in order to look at it later when I am off doing other things. It is how I stay involved in the progress of the work when I am not physically at the studio. Watching as the drawing emerges on the paper is motivation for me to come back and continue working.
What artists living or non-living influence your work?
Vija Celmins, KiKi Smith, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and George Slaw have had the biggest influence on my recent work. I feel that these artists have a genuine and deep connection to the land in their work. I am also inspired by the expansive landscapes of the Hudson River Painters and Joseph Mallord William Turner.
When you are not making art what types of activities and interests do you engage in?
The main activity that I do when I am not creating art is teaching. I gain a sense of fulfillment from teaching various forms of painting and drawing and talking about art every day. I want my students to have meaningful experiences with art because it has played such a big role in my life and I am able to share my passion with them. My students inspire me, which consequently motivates me to make my own work.

"Boston's Best Up-and-Coming Artists"
July 23, 2012
By Shelly Barclay
"The Boston art scene is long established. However, with museums like the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the atmosphere was one of appreciating the lates and the greats. Today, the underground art scene is exploding and emerging artists are finding homes in the many studios that are now spreading out in and around Boston. Furthermore, with the legalization of tattooing in Massachusetts, the mediums in the city are more diverse, allowing the best and brightest up-and-coming artists of Boston to make names for themselves."
"Heidi Hogden is proving herself as one of the most promising recent art school graduates in Boston. Her current thesis exhibit at the Tufts Aidekman Arts Center is a collection of large-scale drawings that highlight the impressions of her birthplace in Wisconsin. They include landscapes, people and animals. Her fans do not have long to wait to see more from her after her exhibit ends at the MFA, as she has another exhibit at the Beland Gallery starting just a month later. Heidi Hogden is shaping up to become a staple in Boston."

"Heidi Hogden’s large-scale graphite drawings depict scenes from her Wisconsin home, specifically animal life and the surrounding landscape. Ultimately, an exploration of memory and longing, these meticulously executed drawings bring the viewer into the intimate world of Hogden’s home place - two deer fighting, a fawn left for the day by her mother, tucked into a nest of camouflaging grasses, a view of the sky up through prairie grass." - Cathy McLauren, Curator

"Six Art School Grads To Watch"
Sunday, April 29
By Cate McQuaid
"Hogden titles her thesis show "42.88°N, -88.01°W," the longitude and latitude of her childhood home in Franklin, Wis. "I wanted to offer different vantage points on the landscape of my home," she says. The work is about memory and longing."
"One haunting large-scale drawing looks up at the sky through a silhouetted prairie grass. Another captures a hunter -- Hogden's brother, Eric -- on the family land. She renders him in a camouflage jacket in an early morning fog. The pattern of his cloths plays against the flutter of grass and leaves behind him. Pine trees in the distance shift slyly from pale to dark, describing forms, then negative space. "Drawing is raw, it's immediate, and every mark you make is permanent," she says."
"Hogden has work in "Topographies of Space Between Somewhere and Nowhere," at the Museum of Fine Arts through Aug. 26, and will have an exhibit at the Essex Art Center in Lawrence in the Fall."
Topographies of Space: Between Somewhere and Nowhere
Museum of Fine Arts Courtyard Gallery
March 1 - August, 2012
Artist Talks: May 2, 5:00 - 7:00 PM
For centuries the subject of “landscape” has offered artists endless possibilities for interpretation. The works presented here are at once investigations of actual physical space, psychological space, and the space of memory and fantasy. The five participating artists explore the contemporary landscape, both real and imagined: its stillness and constantly changing nature, the mark of lives lived, and ultimately, the relationship of humans with environment. In these works they provide an opportunity to reconsider the topography of the space in which we live.
Co-curated by Museum School graduate students Laura Fischman and Heidi Hogden.
Included in the show are students:
Maddy Ahlborn, (BFA, 3rd year)
Laura Fischman (MFA, 2nd year)
Heidi Hogden (MFA, 3rd year)
Chien-ning Liao (MFA, 2nd year)
Maia Lynch (MFA, 2nd year)
"Multimedia Art Takes Over Tufts Gallery"
The Tufts Daily
April 25, 2012
By Anna Majeski
"The work of Heidi Hogden, "42.88°N - 88.01°W," presents a memory-portrait of Hogden's hometown, Frankin, Wisconsin, through a series of hyper-detailed graphite drawings. The five drawings depict wildflowers silhouetted against a sky, a large-scale image of a hunter carrying a crossbow, two stags fighing and two other, smaller images of deer. the dreamlike images, each named only by the specific date and time, are based on photographs the artist took of different spots around her hometown. The "portraits" of Franklin are thus twice removed, mediated by the lens of a camera and reworked by the artist at a later time."
"One striking image, "10/15/2011 4:35 PM" shows a male hunter grasping a crossbow and dressed in camouflage. He stands in a field edged with trees, and though he faces us aggressively, grasping his weapon behind his back, the viewer cannot discern the true direction of his gaze, and his face itself remains hazy and indistinct. His portrait, like the others in Hogden's work, is foggily rendered and gestures towards Hogden's own perception of her town and the relationship between townsperson and landscape."
