Both 2nd 4th and its companion piece “Fourth of Firth of Forth” are suggestive of a particular double-cantilever bridge in Scotland. The sculptures suspended and curved concrete elements appear to be drawn and torqued, creating the illusion of tension between the metal supports. The concrete elements stretch nearly beyond a point of balance. Hehemann alludes to a crossing and to the point of balance traversing a metaphorical barrier.

Hehemann received a MFA from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. He co-owns Vector Custom Fabrication, Inc., a company specializing in architectural metals. His sculptures have contributed to Chicago area exhibits including Pier Walk, Art Chicago, and Martin Luther King Drive Gateway Project.
