My work is mostly made from photo clippings, gloss gel medium, and wood. With just these three components, I have been able to create an abundance of work. The use of photo clippings in my work started on panels with a focus on showing pattern and repetition. Along with repetition and pattern, I began exploring my measurements and the measurements of those who are close to me. This work is minimal in its aesthetics but carries personal autobiographic information within it. Creating this work is a direct response to my family and all of its covert information. My work has been a response to not only my family, but to others around me. By using the statements or phrases that people say, I create panel pieces that directly react to what they say.
"Hedrick’s work is made up of a collage of photo clippings, but the images and moments depicted in the photos have been all but lost. The strips of photo are so thin that the end result is lines of variating color – total abstraction that hints at an image that once was. Although elegantly simple, Hedrick’s work is laden with emotion. Her wall text hints at childhood trauma and the process of sorting through personal relationships."
