Studio4 Residency – Tessa Whitehead


From March through May 2014, Tessa Whitehead will work in Studio4 to create a body of work with cement, a new medium in her practice. Tessa spent much of 2013 apprenticing with her father, a builder/carpenter, learning how to work with cement; their process was to excavate sand/dirt to use as a mould for the cement form.  Excited by the ambitious sculptures she then produced, Tessa will now spend the residency exploring the process in a studio environment. Tessa is particularly interested in creating quick or make-shift moulds, which can barely contain the cement…and will be sharing the process along the way.
