Holly Rowan Hesson

Artist, Curator, Project manager, Consultant, Researcher

Through intuitive and process-led image making, I create dialogues with material, sites and residual memories. This interrogation regularly starts from abstract photographs I make in situ capturing my interest in specific man-made structures, buildings and physical spaces.

Exploring uncertainty and transience, my work is concerned with the actual fragility and transitory nature of what seems solid, weighty and permanent, both physically and also in the way things are perceived.

My resulting sculptural and installation work is multi-layered with uncertain depth of focus.
