Holly Rowan Hesson

Artist, Curator, Project manager, Consultant, Marketing professional
Early career

Holly's work explores process-led image-making that creates dialogues with material, sites and residual memories. Her work most often starts with a camera and ends in installation. Responding intuitively to her surroundings, she is compelled to alter what she sees, transforming solidity and the real into something more transient and ephemeral. Using this compulsion as a starting point she then works in a layered way, with time to explore an important element. Her work is often playful, purposefully incorporating residues of the processes employed in making it, the ideas generation processes and the site in which it was made within the finished work.
