2007 Crazy 8 Art > Alan Emerson Hicks

Artist Alan Emerson Hicks uses found objects and plastic detritus to create compelling vignettes. In his hands the flotsam and jetsam of the modern world are woven into strange flowers and tribal emblems. Ephemeral materials are laced into tightly corseted structures of complexity. Heating and stretching plastic clothes hangers and bottles takes the most common items into new vibrant forms. Alan Emerson Hicks turns the modern world's everyday objects of dull invisibility into bright bouquets of startling singularity.
