Francie Hester’s work explores the concepts of time and memory
Rooted in science and math, Maryland-based artist Francie Hester’s works are cerebral ruminations on memory and time and the phenomenon of patterns that emerge from within seemingly random events. “With each series I begin, I find science offers invaluable perspective when digging into life’s most challenging questions — the study of the brain for example, of the perception of time first as linear and then fluid. Once I have done a body of research and reading, my own artistic interpretation and perceptions take over.” Hester’s newest show will run June 26 – August 3 at the Athenaeum in Old Town Alexandria.
