Ann Landi profiles painter Charline von Heyl.

Landi writes that von Heyl's "paintings revel in unexpected collisions between the geometric and the organic, the decorative and the figurative... In some works, bits of figures and faces emerge. That’s a total accident in the process of completing a large painting, the artist says. 'I stumble over something and then I explore that. I push things so that I will stumble into something new. I push things to the point where I have no idea what’s going to happen.'"
