Echo

About

Echo is a new site-specific installation by Holly Rowan Hesson commissioned by Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival. The projection and sculptural work creates dialogues with materials, memory and the physical space. Hesson will continue her work on the installation with new work being added to the space mid-way through the exhibition.

Holly Rowan Hesson's work explores the gap between and interplay within purely sensory feeling and experience and more literal, rational thought-based experience and an interest in the validity of uncertainty when approaching, experiencing and decoding the visual.

Through intuitive and process-led image making, she creates dialogues with material, sites and residual memories. This regularly starts from interrogations in specific man-made structures, buildings and physical spaces.

Exploring uncertainty and transience, Hesson's 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. 

Using the visual language and formal concerns of abstraction, her resulting sculptural and installation work is multi-layered, often with uncertain depth of focus.
