Summary expansion
While horseback riding through the rugged terrain of the Patagonian sierra, Heebner came upon middens and petrified remnants of ancient forests. In Last Hope Sound, Puerto Natales, she sketched a collection of messen, indigenous Mapuche amphoras and ceremonial vessels. Back in her Santa Barbara studio, she used these sketches to create two series of paintings: Below and beneath; and Unearthed--Prospectus notes
