LACE is pleased to host acclaimed New York-based street and stencil art visionary Logan Hicks for Thin Veils And Heavy Anchors\, a new solo showing of his work.  Thin Veils An d Heavy Anchors will debut to the public on March 8\, 2013 and run thr ough March 10\, 2013\, and marks a triumphant return for an artist whose wo rks have been shown in Auckland\, Cape Town\, Shanghai\, Taipei\, and just about everywhere in between.

< span style="font-size: small\;">Originally a professional screen printer\, Hicks’ work has gained considerable global recognition for its exploration of the urban environment and its ability to capture the sometimes-mundane c ycle of city life in a haunting\, yet highly refined\, manner using hand-sp rayed stencils.  His new body of work has evolved. The paintings have moved inside: from endless streets of colorful building facades up to six feet i n scale to more intimate interior settings\; from exterior cityscapes to th e interiors of various buildings\; and from distant lights to the direct ga ze of figures who are in the process of walking away or climbing up stairs\ ; shapes and curves of emotionless figures juxtaposed against the rigid lin ework of architecture bring attention to the contradictions of the city.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Logan Hi cks is a New York-based artist.  Stenciling started as a substitut ion for screen-printing\, but quickly morphed into Logan’s medium of choice . An ideal union was formed through these stencils: the dirty and gritty na ture of spray paint showcasing the decay of the city\, while the muted shin e of metallic paint mirrored the faint glimmer of hope within it. It is thi s symbiotic relationship with the city that fuels Logan’s work.  Having mas tered the technique\, Hicks has learned new language\, and has been refinin g what it is that he is saying\, and he uses whatever medium or approach is necessary to bring the ideas in his head to the canvas\, and his newer pai ntings are native to his lexicon.  Making art is an internal struggle more than it is a physical one.  A complete list of his exhibitions can be found below.
