Thomas Robertello Gallery is pleased to present in its project space; Sarah Hicks - The Earth is Blue Like an Orange.
In this exhibition of recent work, Hicks presents a floor to ceiling installation of signature ceramic and porcelain sculptures; richly colorful, masterfully glazed, and cartoonish in abstract elements.
Cambrian in nature, the installation evokes a sense of playfulness and interpretive potential. The small scale sculptures celebrate their fragility through precarious placement and decorative forms. The artist's individual forms point toward objects of feminine pleasure and sea creatures primarily, but as a whole, their collective taxonomies create a complex and flourishing visual landscape.
Sarah Hicks lives and works in Chicago. She received a BFA in photography from the School of the Art Institute in 1999 and has exhibited work in many venues in and around Chicago. This is her third exhibition with the gallery.
