Heino Schmid

Born 1976 in Nassau, Bahamas


The context of much of Heino Schmid’s work is concerned with narrative and the reconsideration of personal stories in the public forum. Using a variety of media such as video, drawing, installation and photography, he investigates the often simple, sometimes irrelevant encounters and collisions between people and their environments.

 

"Although I strive for universal metaphors, I approach each body of work in a very personal way. Using self-referential experiences as an avenue to illuminating collective experiences I hope to reveal the subtle dramas that inform social dynamics and ultimately bring those realities to the forefront for discussion."
