Hickok feels most at home when working with strong, powerful shapes. “For this series I began by cutting out mockups from black and white construction paper, just playing with the shapes. This was followed by an act of elimination: removing shapes one by one to create the most potent composition.”
In Minimal Scapes, the straight line represents the rational, the geometric “But,” says, Hickok, “it was the biomorphic that pulled me in this direction. The landscape that most excited me was always the simple, massive black mountain. So, oddly enough, Nature’s simple geometry compelled me to an intensification of it: landscapes to Minimal Scapes.”
