Henie Reisinger, photographer, artist AND #NUTS Guest Therapist! As a photographer and mixed-media artist, Henie Reisinger smiles when people praise her vision. Unknown to all but a few, Henie sustained a serious eye injury at one-year-old, leaving her left eye completely blind and her right eye with limited vision. As an artist, Henie considers her work post-visual; her focus is tapping into the core of matter, meaning and experience.
Henie’s recent artwork encompasses sustainable and environmental pieces that utilize recycled elements from culturally relevant sources. Rich in texture, these pieces are highly evocative. Through her assemblage of words, pictures and contours, the artist structures her pieces by touch, trusting that the iconic imagery—so resonant with sense memory—will tell the story.
