Urban Light

As a landscape architect Heather Capen often worked on projects in the city that had to be integrated with its infrastructure.

“I came to be aware of the layers involved— sewage and drainage and electrical lines,” she says. “I became interested in not just the design but all the things that are involved from trees and streets to cars. I learned to appreciate the overlap of history, topography, cultures and industry that occurs in an urban environment.” She now paints those aspects of the city. An exhibition, Urban Light: Recent Paintings by Heather Capen, is at Maybaum Gallery in San Francisco through September 3.
