    Statement

     

    David Hicks is an artist who uses abstraction to explore a language of line, form and emotive image. Mostly working in oils and collage David uses methods of layering and of contemplative responses to the inner workings of the painting as it builds. He works either on one painting at a time or in in a series with a similar medium and this exploration allows an internal dialogue to emerge. Often listening to music or with a story or personal image in mind his response is a natural instinctive way of painting. He will allow some paintings to rest for months before painting over them creating layers and depth. Fine Papers are used in his work as well as bold brush strokes and lines. In some paintings landscapes may appear as recognisable subjects Illuminated by the personal response within the viewer.
