Hedda Neelsen is a contemporary painter who uses an intuitive painting process to explore abstract and surrealist imagery. Inspired by artists of the Transcendental and Abstract Expressionism movements, Hedda paints beyond the physical appearance of the world and gives form to the inner workings of the psyche. Her paintings examine our subconscious understanding of ideas and representations through the use of symbolic objects and relationships. Hedda graduated Arizona State University in 2010 with her BFA and currently resides in Phoenix, AZ.
