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
