Heidi Hogden: Uncertain Terrain

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Heidi Hogden: Uncertain Terrain consists of graphite drawings and paper sculptures created by Hogden while she was the Artist-in-Resident at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Through these works, Hogden explores the physical frailty of the natural world and the relationship between place and identity on a symbolic level. This work represents moments of transformation; from setting old drawings ablaze and collecting discarded tree trunks to creating objects of contemplation. Hogden seeks to discover the psychological and emotional terrain in understanding the self and the manner in which place becomes a defining characteristic of identity.
