“At some point I became aware that my artwork needed in some way to reflect what was going on in the world. Over a period of time I made various attempts at this. Then in 2013, I saw an exhibit of Haitian art at the Museum of Civilization in Quebec. Several beaded Voudou flags were on display, and seeing them I knew that this was the medium I wanted to work in. With this technique I feel as though I am coming pretty close to being able to make a strong social statement, and at the same time create an object of beauty, to be appreciated regardless of the message.” – Nicholas Heller.

Nicholas Heller has written and illustrated several children’s books. He is a woodworker in Portland, Maine. This exhibition in the project room, i.e. the FiveMyles Plus/Space, presents his sequenced and beaded voudou flags for the first time to the public.
