Joe Hemes is a mixed-media artist focussing on the manipulation of light to create mystical experiences. His illuminated sculptures cast shadows, project color, and weave projected bulb filaments into a tapestry of light.
Based in Portland, Maine, Hemes has designed illuminated sculptures for event spaces, schools, and homes and exhibited his work in museums and art galleries throughout New England.
Using various materials to create his pieces, Hemes begins with a conceptual idea and allows the material to inform the details of the piece. His current work exposes the realities of human climate disruption.
"I believe that art can illuminate these issues in new and provocative ways," says Hemes. "The light from my pieces draws people in and asks them to consider their place in an optimistic reimagining of our world."
