Dom Heffer (b.1978) is an artist whose work pokes around in hidden structures, or infrastructures, be they mechanical or psychological. Primarily using paint as a starting point, the work develops in numerous twists and turns; painted images looking very much as if they are frozen in the process of being ‘worked out’. His interest in Duchamps’ devilish toying with the conventional structures of perception and the ‘art world’ have been a continual reference point for his practice.
Dom has worked with arts and research organisations nationally and internationally, working with such organizations as 20/21 Visual Arts Centre in Scunthorpe and the Institute of General Semantics in New York. He was shortlisted for the Woolgather Prize in Leeds, and was a contributing artist at the 2016 Media Ecology Conference, University of Bologna, Italy. He lives and works in Hull, east Yokshire.Return to artists
