Heavenly Body | Andrea Hersh, Spring 2016 Artist in Residence
July 9 – August 27, 2016
Artist’s reception: Friday, July 29, 5-9PM

 

Andrea Hersh Image

During her residency at the Arts Center, Andrea Hersh continued making her protagonists part human, part vegetable, using monochromatic tones that imbue the work with a sense of despair. Hersh has created worlds overrun by these creatures, representing the utopia that could have been our planet. By insinuating these fanciful hybrids into precarious and toxic situations, she explores themes of vulnerability, desire, greed, and industry gone awry.
