Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Woodcut on Wood.

Of his Bloom series, Hickok says, “I did not plan to do this—flowers in vases. I was ten paintings into it when I stepped back and laughed and said, ‘What am I doing? I’m painting flowers and vases!” But I kept going, driven to do it. Now I’m trying to figure out why.”

“When you pick flowers from a garden, make a bouquet and send it to someone you love, you’re saying something. And this emphasis on message, on communication, is reflected in the orthographic images throughout, the alphabet at once distorted, disconnected and incomplete.”

“What is it I most want to say, not just to my loves, but to myself and to the world, with the years I have left on this planet? What am I yearning to communicate? What will I regret never having said? The blooms represent growing, developing, an outward movement of blessing. But they also represent looseness, amusement and play, an essential component of that message.”
