Joe Hengst is a San Francisco based artist who attended the Columbus College of Art & Design and earned a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute.
The physical experiences we interact with today are perceived by minds, some more open than others, that reside in this newly fabricated society. Hengst’s work is just a small piece of the blueprint of what really happens beneath, and in-between, the surface of these physical interactions. In his work, Hengst is representing our departure from nature through the ethereal plane, or the space between our perceptions of everyday life. With these paintings he is depicting the birth of something new and beautiful.
