Travis Hetman grew up in Minnesota, and he received his B.F.A. from the University of Minnesota. He currently lives and works in Denver alongside his wife and pets.
In Travis’s “Sitting Room” series, you’ll find a portal to a landscape (or perhaps just a memory or a feeling) and a seat constructed on a glimmer of infinite space. The blank space of the page is an invitation to sit, to think and to contemplate, but you can’t take it with you. Your only task is to enjoy it. Through drawing, painting and installation work, Travis’s art touches on themes of space, time, and an endless frolic between meaning and meaninglessness.
