Statement

Alan Emerson Hicks

(Creator of temporal sculpture; Destroyer of video tape)

 Artist Statement

My artwork is about transformation. I collect plastic commonplace objects and societal detritus; bottles, grocery bags, caps, hangers, video tape and use them to make sculpture. I want the viewer to see the objects of their everyday lives anew, hopefully changing the way they dispose of these items. In my work hangers are transformed into a giant “precious” diamond, bottle cap rings become fragile “glass” constructions and grocery bags become startling colorful towers. My work is a commentary on what our society views as important and unimportant.
