Announcements of new Heffernan shows (thank you, Phantasmaphile!) are always a good excuse for me to go for a dive in the endless pool of her archived works – and realise that Booty (see image above and below) remains my favourite series to date.

And although I’m not entirely sure which of her flora-and-fauntastical self-portraits will be on show at the Infinite Work in Progress solo show, the well-chosen title and the fact that there’s over 20 works on display both suggest that the probability that you’ll get to see something from the Booty series is mathematically speaking relatively high.

I know I normally tend to post free exhibitions here but yes, I would still say that it’s worth the $12 (OUCH, Y THOUGH?!) admission fee.

Details below.
