2011 the calendar “Photographs by Heide Schimke” is created in support of the Soroptimist project “Sorptimists go for water and food”
Since 2006 She now regularly sets out for lengthy study trips and travel to Australia, making the East Coast off Fraser Island (Queensland) her focal point, where she temporarily lives and works. From the south of Tasmania to the north she gets to know the continent more and more thorough, while she enjoys the remoteness and unspoiled nature most on Fraser Island, where she receives the most stimulus for her artistic work.
2004 travelling to South Africa, New Zealand, Peru und Australia, Island
The dealings with nature lead the artist more and more to structurally seeing. Surfaces are the subject, they are part of the human history. Therein she feels the sum of all memories: erosive tracks, blurred forms, washouts, drifts, the shining through of different earth surfaces.
