Hewson has an ongoing curiosity for the diversity and reasoning of human behaviour. Her practice orbits around the fundamentals of psychological theories. Taking herself as an open case study, Hewson adapts these theories to perform in a visual art context, closely psychoanalyzing repeated behaviours and emotions. Diving into the space before something becomes an idea, Hewson adopts an instinctive approach to image making. She taps into her unconscious by making impulsive reactions to materials and surface building layers of colour, pattern and form over multiple canvases at one time to confront the complexity of this space. The visual language that emerges is a documented glimpse into the activity of this unconscious space.
