Artist’s statement

Jeffrey HessingIn 1972, I decided to dedicate myself to the creation of art that celebrates
the beauty around us and the magic in the ordinary. I chose to work from life itself, combining an intense observation of reality with the greatest possible degree of spontaneity and freedom. This endeavor has lead me to an inner truth about how I perceive, feel, and respond to the physical world. It is a never ending exploration.

My ultimate goal is to see the spirit in all things and to express that spirit in such a way that other people will see it, be touched by it, and perceive things anew as a result.

It is my deep conviction that while making my art more personal and intimate, I arrive at an expression of the self in relation to the outer world which then becomes universal, transcending continents and cultures.
