Studio Visit: Logan HicksWe visited the Brooklyn studio of Logan Hicks as he prepared for upcoming show, Love Never Saved Anything opening tomorrow, March 7th at 154 Stanton Street in New York City’s lower east side.
The drifting, the weightlessness was how I felt internally. It seemed like the perfect way to capture what I was going through – adrift in a sea of uncertaintyAn observer, explorer and photographer, all of the aforementioned contribute to his process. For this body of work, Logan experimented with underwater photography, a departure from the architectural works he is known for, staging shots to explore nautical narratives. Love Never Saved Anything references his experiences from the year prior inspiring themes surrounding water and its symbolism to express what he was going through at that time. Each canvas is the result of hours of intricate stencil work and layers of spray elegantly executed to create striking imagery.
In addition to his paintings, Logan will be showing some of his photography on the lower level of the gallery space, documenting his exploration of forgotten places, the dilapidated and spots perhaps known to some but few venture to.
Upcoming, Logan will also be showing works in both Istanbul, Turkey and Basel, Switzerland.
Love Never Saved Anything will be on view daily, 11:00am to 7:00pm from March 7 through March 19th, 2014 at 154 Stanton Street, New York.
