“The work is inspired by a new move to the bay area, and looking at structres as a place of sanctuary. Finding that place be it house / home / apartment / bungalow that is the quiet from the storm that is the day to day craziness of our lives, a recharge. The retreat that though perhaps modest  takes on power, soaks up stories and takes on a life of its own.  
All are done with watercolor and ink on paper.”

Terrific new works from kauffmanartistry.com showing at lequivive.com

Pop Garden!
Feb 22 through April 6, 2013
Opening reception Friday February 22, 6:00 – 8:00 PM

Thomas Robertello Gallery is pleased to present Pop Garden!; an exhibition of ceramic sculptures by Chicago-based artist Sarah Hicks. Featuring a variety of surfaces and forms found within organic macro and microscopic structures, Hicks’s fourth solo exhibition is a fantastical vivarium of imagined morphologies displaying the artist’s minimalist pop-surreal sensibilities.

Displayed in a playful taxonomic hierarchy that utilizes traditional and installation based methods, Hicks’s collection of eccentric specimens and indeterminate curios are sculpted from reassembled molds of mass produced and found objects. The sculptures draw from her graphical urge to explore highly stylized and ornamental forms, while simultaneously revealing the obvious and abstract relationships between their origins as chic knick-knacks, toys, and junk shop finds.

In addition to the artist’s methodology of transforming everyday objects, Hicks employs a technique referred to as slip trailing. The method consists of pouring ceramic slip into a plaster slab in which shapes are drawn rather than molded, allowing for the artist to create nearly two-dimensional forms in a fluid and gestural manner. The resulting sculptures from both processes are further articulated by treating the surfaces with an assortment of intense colors, glazing techniques, patterns, and textures. Rife with a sense of zip and whimsy, Hicks’s inquiry into a familiar yet alien macrocosm illustrates her fascination with design and the decorative.
