Travels: New Works by Heidi Jung by Heidi Jung

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.

All works created on site in Mexico and Italy in the spring of 2017

Landlocked at Michael Warren contemporary June 2015 by Heidi Jung


Over the last few years I have primarily concentrated on botanical imagery, and the idea of finding beauty in decay. This series is an extension of that idea, with a kinship in a natural subject matter. Many of the seaweed images that I referenced in this series were from actual samples collected by Dr. Earle form the 1970’s that are housed in the Smithsonian archives. This body of work is my small way of bringing a bit of attention to the oceans from a landlocked place like Colorado.  I want to help reiterate the idea that Dr. Earle and others teach, that every area on this planet is connected ecologically, and that we will all feel the results of imbalance in some way or another whether it be in the short or long term.

I will be donating a portion of the sales of this work to Mission Blue so that they can continue to do this important work. (

About he home: 1625 was the first home built on Gilpin Street in Country Club over a century ago. Designed by Arthur Fisher of famed Fisher and Fisher Architects, this beautiful 1909 Tudor has been owned solely by the Cowperthwaite family since its original construction. The past century has seen an address change from its original 305 Gilpin Street, a sunroom and servant quarters’ addition and a handful of tasteful renovations. It remains in near-vintage condition and wonderfully, none of the remodels has significantly altered its character.

Jung Included in Hinterland's Sacred Bug Show - write up in Westword by David Menard

Beauty and the Bug
Cory Casciato

Except when they’re biting, stinging or otherwise annoying us, we spend most of our lives ignoring insects. But a closer look at our little exoskeletal fellow travelers can reveal not just utility, but beauty and deeper meaning. That’s the concept behind The Sacred Bug and the Insect, a group show at Hinterland Art Space featuring the work of Heidi Jung, Malea Ellison, Grant Williams, Gail Boyd, Norman Broomhall, David Zimmer, Robin Schaefer and Sabin Aell in mediums ranging from painting to installation and video. Aell conceived of the show when she realized that she and several colleagues were all working on pieces that explored the world of insects as it intersects with technology, nature, mysticism and dreams.

“People don’t usually pay too much attention to bugs, because they’re so small. They play a way larger role than we think. If you take just one little bug out of the food chain, it changes everything completely,” Aell explains. “They also play really important roles in religion and culture. If you look at bugs and how intricate they are, and how colorful and detailed, they’re like little artworks.”

The show opens tonight with a reception from 6 to 10 p.m. at Hinterland, 3254 Walnut Street, and runs through October 7. For more info, call 720-309-1764 or visit
