André Hess

Concepts Andre Hess makes simple shapes that are both familiar and fugitive. Shapes that require the viewer to question what the pieces mean rather than what they resemble or represent. The making process informs the meaning of the work. He uses technique that fulfils the requirement. Surface treatment serves only to qualify what is already there.Career path Qualifications: Modern Art Practices and Debates, the Open University, passed with distinction Understanding Western Art, the Open College of the Arts Batchelor of Veterinary Science, University of Pretoria, South Africa Areas of work: Exhibiting Collections: National Gallery, Cape Town, South Africa University of Pretoria, South Africa The Clay Museum, Cape Town, South Africa The South African High Commissoin, London Altech/Altron Group, Johannesburg, South Africa read full statement
