Dave Hebb - Polaroid Selfie, 2013
Dave Hebb works primarily with photography and video exploring the relationship between self and environment and how external surroundings can both shape and reflect inner states of being. By examining interactions between natural and human-made systems he explores a range of psychological and metaphysical metaphors for the individual’s relationship to the world at large.
His work has been exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally, most notably at Art Laboratory Berlin, The Dorsky Museum of Art and the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts. His photography has been published in print as well as featured online by numerous outlets including Aint-Bad Magazine, STRANT Magazine, Another Place, Empty Stretch, and The American Guide. He has received several grants and awards including a Fulbright Fellowship to Iceland, visiting artist residencies and participating in the NYFA MARK program. He holds a BFA in Film and Television Production from New York University and an MFA in Painting/Installation Art from Montana State University. He has taught art and design at several colleges and online since 1995, although currently he mostly takes care of his home, dogs and family.
He also likes to make cocktails.
