Tesselations is three-dimensional origami-based art combining maps, manuscripts, printed photographs and hand-finished paper. The compositions experiment with tensions between content and form, providing depth and historical layering. The continuity and concealment of detail provoke intrigue and invite exploration.
Architexture focusses on buildings with strong textural quality. Their skin and visible structures are expressed in the three-dimensional paper construction.
The main media are Hedy’s own photographs in combination with decorative paper.
Beautiful Decay is a series of collages responding to the patina of age visible in the architectural fabric of historic and often dilapidated buildings and structures. Hedy layers photographs she has taken in the course of her work as a conservation architect, adding graphite drawings, watercolours, gold leaf and found objects, to express the beauty in the decay and the surviving details.
