Tristan Hessing

Tristan Hessing’s work incorporates darkroom photography, 8mm film, sculpture, and installation. Typically monochromatic and process driven, his work explores surface, geometry and place. The presence of his work is peripheral, providing a subtle arrival at a set of ideas, and hiding a meticulous and controlled process of trial and error. At the core of his work lies an enquiry into the way we interact with space and perceive our environment, brought about through subtle spacial interventions and manipulations and meticulous attention to detail. Tristan’s practice is informed by his many ongoing exchanges as part of his multiple roles as artist, gallerist, and studio owner. He co-founded Moot gallery in 2005, and this project evolved into One Thoresby Street, an artist’s studio complex, project space, and production facility, where he currently holds the position of director.
