John Hess: Permutations
June 15, 2019 – August 8, 2019| Admission: Free
Folding and shaping his work into many geometrical variations, John Hess has developed a unique approach to textile art. These double-woven dimensional reliefs exist alongside his more traditional flat woven pieces, each series drawing attention in their own way to beautiful nuances of color, shape, and pattern. Hess uses the subtle variation of motifs, scale changes, and inversion to create dynamism and visual tension, writing “The amazing transformation of many threads coming together to create wonderful shapes is magic.”
A highly-regarded member of Utah’s art community for decades, he has exhibited his work widely and received numerous public art commissions. Visit Artist Website
