About

Quyen Hicks, born in Ho Chi Minh, Viet Nam but live and work in Perth. As an artist she chooses to guide you on a journey of love to a place and time that will awaken your spirit and breathe life into the mundane.
By taking daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of middle class values, Hicks creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. With her art is a feeling, an expression that can easily transport you. Through the use of colour and lines you can be taken to place of peace in a moment...
By applying abstraction, she often creates work using creative game tactics, but these are never permissive. Using medium acrylic building layer upon layer, balancing colour, tone, depth, and motion is similar to creating a symphony. Her works doesn’t reference and recognisable form. The results are deconstructed becomes multifaceted. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, she absorb the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. With Hicks “My paintbrush becomes a performer, dancing across the canvas juicy and full of life. My artwork is meant to convey the impulse of the moment, the expression of my raw feelings, along the way you will see deep into my soul and experience the passionate rhythm of my culture.”
