David Hicks

Clipping, Blue Vessel



“I am just beginning to understand the attraction I have to the agricultural.
The shapes and themes I reference can be found in the fields surrounding
my home. Forms that could be hanging from trees, buried in the dirt or
rusting in the shed, find their way into my work. I have a fundamental
understanding of these organic and sometimes mechanical forms. They
tell me about myself and they explain the natural processes of the
agricultural cycles. Agriculture speaks to me about my own human
experience. In the agricultural world there are cycles that feel like
allegorical references to a human struggle, a struggle that starts with
fertilization, moves through growth and finally ends in decay. This process
is raw and connected to my understanding of self. Beyond the allegory
there is the rawness in the formal nature of the organic. Formal elements
have the ability to speak in a universal language. This is the language I
speak through and engage in my sculpture, a language of origin, form and
beauty. These primal elements are rooted in my sculptural process. They
are the fundamentals that continue to present themselves, providing a
physical residue of my thought.”
