Wk 11- Artist Convo- Wesley Hicks

     This week I did my artist conversation on Wesley Hicks. I was actually in a rush on Thursday cause I had an exam that day I wanted to study for so I thought he wasn’t there so I just took a picture of his art and left, but then I think he should up. Some say he did but others didn’t so I don’t know if he really came or not. All I know is his art was a bunch of different sculptures and some really caught my eye. The one I chose is a set of goldish different shapes.
     Hicks says that his art is him reflected back at the world through a hazy mirror. He says his art is of unknown origins and only the way he presents and arranges them gives them context. He believes art should be linked through ideas and concepts and have values both economically and spiritually that benefit those who appreciate it.
     I really liked this piece of his. I don’t really know why though. It just caught my eye. Maybe it was the goldish color since I like gold but it just looked kind of cool. I had no idea what they were suppose to mean though. I’m not that in depth with art but as long as it sheds light for him and others that understand him then that’s good with me.
