    Maxine Hess is a mixed media artist originally from Boston, Massachusetts, currently living and working in Woodstock, Georgia. Hess has exhibited nationally and internationally including Shenyang, China, New York City, Los Angeles and other major cities in the U.S. Her work has been reviewed in HyperAllergic, W Magazine, ArtsATL and has been featured in a number of other publications as well. Hess’s work can be found in several private collections in the U.S.

    Hess’s work is driven by challenging personal and current social issues often not openly discussed. Her art is rooted in the quilt-making of marginalized female populations. She uses quilting to make sense of inexplicable experiences by contrasting frayed, transparent fabrics and loose unfinished stitching with the tactile construction of quilting. The combination of the feminine with the harsh realities of the content are intended to provoke the viewer’s thinking and influence intellectual and emotional dialogue with others.
