While the bulk of Ron Hicks' latest show is overtly about the various states of romance, this great mid sized piece is the only one that could carry a different narrative style altogether. The cold gaze of this woman on a sunny afternoon scene is mysterious in a way that could be the result of a bad romance, or bad blood. Either way, I'm wondering what's in the trunk.

April 17, 2011 6 View Post View Post Today is the opening day of the brand new Ron Hicks show at our gallery in Soho. The opening runs from 4 to 6 pm, and the artist will be in attendance. This is the centerpiece of the show— “Intimate Encounter.” Continuing his theme of romance in the presence of fashion, Hicks depicts a couple that is close by proximity, but infinitely distant in an emotional sense. Subtle gestures are complimented by loose brush strokes that really drive home the dramatic nature of the scene. Everything about each characters’ body language— their hands, facial expressions, and postures— create an undeniable dissonance in this romantic pairing. Each painting in the show reads like a cinematic still, rendered in oil. I strongly recommend stopping by this weekend to see all this great work in person.Ron Hicks, “Intimate Encounter,” Oil on Linen, 50” x 40”

ART OF THE DAY: Ron Hicks
...
With a show that consists primarily of fully realized narratives of figures in context, it's a pleasure to see this little head study included in Ron Hicks' new show. There is no grand narrative, or philosophical statement. This is just a brief conversation between an artist and his canvas. Like any great athlete, or musician, Hicks is making his craft look easy. This piece looks like an hour or two at the easel- and about 20 years focus.

Ron Hicks: Life, Art and A Captured Dream
...
With a gaze of uncertainty about the next half hour of his life, Ron Hicks allowed the seat at Corrider 44 to gradually mold around his body in an effort to settle into a comfortable position. Like a film director trying to fit his surroundings artistically into the "L" and the "7 of his fingers, he prepares for what would be a brief reflection of his life and his true passion, painting. Just a few moments into our conversation I was reminded why I asked for the interview.
As a young boy growing up in Columbus, Ohio and later Denver, Colorado, Ron was influenced by his mother's passion for art. Whether it was the books and magazines lying around the house or the occasional art contest entry his mother would prepare, Hicks quickly fell in love with creative expression. His talent didn't go unnoticed by bullies in high school either as he recalls, with a mocking gesture, a particular Dumbo like caricature of a well deserving classmate.
His interest grew stronger as he matured and continued to shine bright through one of the darker times in his life. At the age of 16 Ron, then living in Denver, moved back to Ohio after a traumatic split between his mother and father. Strapped financially, Ron and his mother had to rely on the support system of their family, namely an uncle who was the pastor at a local church. Ron recalls living in the attic of the church for a year while the family struggled to survive. Once supplementing his mother's income with his wages as a Manager at McDonald's, Hicks reflects, "I have an appreciation for my experiences. I'm thankful for where I'm at", he continue by saying, "I believe in God, he has blessed my path."
Giving up the school basketball team and focusing on supporting his family and bettering himself, Ron won a scholarship to attend Columbus College of Art and Design… Now the story could continue in this traditional fashion followed by Hicks' accomplishments and life's works but that would take away from his true accomplishments.
Years after leaving Ohio and returning to Denver, a place that he personally preferred to live, Ron attended the Colorado Institute of Art. After graduating he took a job as a freelance illustrator and found himself in a universally familiar rut called practicality. Each profession has its unique challenges, but in the end, Ron says, "I came to the realization that I could work for 30yrs, have a 401(k) but would I be fulfilled?"
While many have the inclination to follow their passion, those that actually succumb to their own will are far and few in between. Unlike most people in his position Ron said, "I had to follow my passion regardless of whether I made money or not.
...
Ron Hicks has become one of America's top emerging artists by finding strength in traditional values even in the face of adversity. As an African American man, Hicks has refused to be categorized and unlike many, he gladly shares his sensitivity for the experiences life has to offer.

One of them, Ron Hicks, received a seminary degree and is the pastor of United Methodist Men, one of about 50 inmate-run churches that operate at Angola. He has been at the prison since 1991 and has seen it evolve. Prison rape and other acts of inmate-on-inmate violence are not the problems they once were, Hicks said.
"You don't see fights. You don't see all these things," he said.

Ron Hicks
Ron's mood setting oil paintings are a blend of representational art and impressionism. Hicks uses a muted palette and rarely uses pure color.
