October 2013 Artist: Heather Corey

In her new show ‘Casting Call’ artist Heather Corey invites women to be a part of her unique artistic vision

Heather Corey’s ‘Love Corsetry’ collection is a culmination of her passion for handmade paper and sculpture with the unequivocal beauty of the female form. Her current endeavor is to launch a collection featuring one hundred different women; each corset a reflection of her soul.

Her new show ‘Casting Call’ will debut on Friday October 4, 2013 right here at D’s Soul Full Cafe. It is an opportunity for women to learn about Heather’s process and find out how to become one of her casting models.

Show Run
October 4 – October 31, 2013

Musical Entertainment
The lyrically-driven hippie folk-rock sound of The Porchistas was born on a porch in Montclair, NJ. With influences that run the gamut from Ween to Rancid, their music is defined by the songwriting chemistry between Adam Falzer & Alan Smith. We’re thrilled to have them on our li’l stage.

About The Artist
Heather Corey is a Hoboken-based artist inspired by the feminine form. She combines inspiration from a wide range of disciplines; from modern movement expressions of the late British fashion designer Alexander McQueen to the time-tested visual cues of Baroque embellishment. After receiving her MFA from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Heather traveled extensively through France where she developed an appreciation for Parisian glamour by experiencing its roots firsthand. It was here that she channeled her love for assembled textures and honed her signature sculpting style with handmade paper.

For me, the feminine form conjures a sense of motion and strength. My current endeavor is to launch a collection featuring one hundred different women–each corset a reflection of her soul. Whether they are vulnerable or strong, sad or elated, confident or unsure, they all share one thread that makes them both different and the same–feminine motion.

Heather maintains her paper studio in the Monroe Center for the Arts in Hoboken, NJ. Her latest works can be viewed at pulledsheets.com
