Week 11- Artist Conversation- Wesley Hicks

IMG_1322

This week the installation that caught my eye was Wesley Hick’s piece. His sculptures intrigued me and with this particular piece I admire the simplicity. While the top pieces are all different, they are the same size and rest on the same platform, which gives it a nice cohesion and a pleasing effect.

It was interesting to notice the artist’s thesis statement and his thoughts behind the piece. He states that some of the pieces are damaged and are painted over in order to confuse the audience from knowing that they are damaged. In making the audience confused, they are made to formulate their own conclusions and interpret the art instead of taking it how it is. I think this is a very interesting concept and also a great one.
