Francie Johnson Hester (BFA 1982)
My work is a series of studies and reflections on how pattern emerges from random events, how random events form memory, and how the passage of time shapes a life. The work draws on the ordering principles of mathematics and science to contemplate how order, sequence and memory are created from random or chaotic events.
