About The Show

Project_210 is pleased to announce D. JEAN HESTER: You Know I Love You, Right? Consisting of drawings, installation and a database-driven participative project, this body of work tackles serious issues concerning love, loss, regret, unanswerable questions and mortality.

The artist asks, “What traces and evidence do we leave behind? What residue clings to the remnants of a life lived? What stories and emotions attach themselves to the most mundane of possessions – scarves, mugs, toothbrushes, spools of thread, stacks of books, drawers full of greeting cards received? For those of us left behind, how do we face those remnants? What do we do with the unfinished business? What about all those questions we meant to ask? Or the questions we never even realized we had? Those questions whose answers are forever lost to us?” Of particular interest to the artist is humankind’s ability to persevere in the face of tragedy, be it privately or publicly, interpersonally or globally. There is hope to be found, in spite of relentless challenges. This is the catalyst for D. Jean Hester’s artistic practice and a point of departure into a multi-media investigation.

D. Jean Hester is an artist and curator based in Los Angeles. Her curatorial project and book, The Artist’s Alphabet #1: The Great Recession” were presented at Project_210 last November. She has shown actively in Los Angeles and New York since completing her MFA in Art and Integrated Media at CalArts in 2006. She previously studied Cinema at USC, earning a BFA.
