Willy Heeks is a painter known for works that are intricately layered with bold swathes of color and stenciled forms that seep out of the background. In his monotypes published at Aurobora, Heeks uses the intaglio press to create soft, spongy backdrops for his stencil forms that simmer in their own bold colors as they surface into the foreground of each composition.
In these works on paper, Heeks employed found items from an abandoned construction site as stencil forms to undergrid his compositions. Flourescent spray paint and white primer were used to set forms –through mesh wire, chainlink, twisted cords — onto a Plexiglas matrix. Heeks then inked, surface wiped, and printed image over image increasing visual information. Heeks then would further embellish each monotype with added handwork allowing inks, watercolors, and chaotic brush strokes to have their own way with the surfaces of these monotypes.

A painting should speak for itself. As Fritz Lang, the great Austrian film maker and director of “Metropolis” stated, “When a director makes a film and it doesn’t express what he wants to say and he needs to give an interview to explain to an audience why and what; he is a lousy director.”
I certainly don’t suggest an Artist be aloof or even this dogmatic, as I have enjoyed countless discussions with collectors that have left me with a vivid and refreshed perspective of my work, but it is a striking remark that applies to Art; a painting should grab the viewer without an essay or speech, leaving further explanation supplementary rather than vital.
Where possible, my own thoughts should recede to allow space for the views of the audience.
