Hessam's process is intuitive by nature. He approaches a canvas with no direct idea of the composition, palette or artistic fundamentals. It comes from a place in his heart, a place of emotion wherein a feeling is expressed. He starts with a single stroke of color applied to the canvas. He stays within the emotion he desire to share, holding that feeling in his heart. As he applies the colors that best express those feelings, the form of the work begins to emerge.
