Dom Heffer

Dom Heffer is an artist based in Hull. Investigating the role of painting in the information age, and the pro’s and con’s of technological innovation, Dom’s paintings depict ‘media environments’ real or imagined. For example; a painting may illustrate a negative experience in a cinema, or depict Walter Benjamin being attacked by photocopiers trying to steal his aura. The paintings are often filmed as they are made, in order to squeeze more data from the process of making, and gain insights into things as they change.
