Emotive and poignant figuration rich in texture
Based in Colorado, USA, Ron Hicks creates atmospheric, emotive and impressionistic portraits, choosing to balance representational figurative drawing with moody and muted colour palette.
Drawing inspiration from masters such as Whistler, Rembrandt and Degas, Hicks has developed a unique, almost undefinable style with a strong narrative aspect paired with a powerful yet poignant aesthetic.
Hick's work strikes a delicate balance between revealing too much to too little, using shapes and light rather than objects or people to create his beautiful and timeless pieces.
His work features in many private collections across North America including Grammy Award winning musician John Legend.
