Ms. Hesse’s work combines organic and artificial materials that move, cast shadows, change form, and explore ideas about “growth, materiality, and the ethereal,” according to the artist. Inspired by nature and natural processes, Ms. Hesse’s art is informed by her personal experience of living by the ocean. “Sway. Shift. Formation” is a group of wall sculptures that uses transparent materials and projected lights to create “contemplative and meditative” landscapes and environments.
Concurrently, an exhibition of student artwork will be presented in the Barnes and Wilde Galleries.
