“Of Dreams and Realities: Heather Gordy and Vincent Fink”

It’s hard to say which artist represents dreams and which represents realities at the exhibition “Of Dreams and Realities: Heather Gordy and Vincent Fink.” “We’re both into dreams,” Gordy says. “Vincent is into lucid dreaming, and I’m interested in the feelings that dreams produce. He does a lot of surrealistic stuff, and I do more realistic work.”

Gordy and Fink first met as art students at the Art Institute of Houston, then joined the same design firm at graduation. Fink eventually left to pursue individual goals (such as his .506 clothing designs), while Gordy remained. The pair has joined forces for other exhibits, a testament, Fink says, to the respect the two have for each other.

Gordy will exhibit ink and mixed-media works. “Most of them have to do with nature. That seems to be a theme, animals and a lot of flowers all tied together with the use of patterns and vivid colors.” Fink will contribute neo-surrealistic works, including pieces based on “sacred geometry” (a signature for him).
