Jeremy Joan Hewes
Photographic mixed media and collage
My work centers on color and place, with a strong graphic component. Color has always drawn me in, and places make me want to express the sense of a city or a patch of woods by combining my photographs with other elements.
As an artist, I think of myself as a prospector, digging among the images and memories I’ve assembled over the years and following my curiosity to learn and dream about places I have yet to visit. I try to hold those feelings of discovery and inquiry as I create each mixed-media work, weaving together my photographs, painted surfaces, and bits of maps, old pages, or even wax.
