Francie Hester: Symbolic Spaces
Symbolic Spaces, examines time as infinite, fluid, without discrete beginning or end. Hester creates spaces where thought, time and memory come together as a collective through the use of fabricated steel, plexiglass disks; disks of solid aluminum; and aluminum panels. Successive layers of acrylic paint are applied, sanded, heated, and then reapplied to create the depth of the surface. Some surfaces are etched with brain scans; and others are drilled. A final layer of wax and raw pigment pulls out the patina and richness of the layered colors.
Ten percent of the sales for Symbolic Spaces will be donated to The Smith Center for Healing and the Arts in Washington, DC, in honor of Brendan Ogg, a young poet who died of brain cancer at age 20 and whose life and work served as an inspiration for these pieces.
