"To be modern is not a fashion, it is a state. It is necessary to understand history, and he who understands history knows how to find continuity between that which was, that which is, and that which will be."

Le Corbusier

Heather Zusman’s wood sculptures have gained recognition for their minimal form that features the natural color and texture of the wood grains. Influenced by traditional woodworking practices and design motifs found in Art Nouveau and the Arts & Craft Movement, Zusman's sculptural works are simple in form and purposeful in detail. She fearlessly pushes her medium to the brink: creating intricate compositions that bend, curve, and swell, casting shadows on the wall.
