Lori Zimmer: "Art Hiding in Paris"
Logan Hicks: "Still New York, A Forced Slumber in the City That Never Sleeps”
Isolation in the urban context has been a focal point of Logan Hicks’ multi-layered stenciled paintings for over a decade. When Covid19 shut down New York City on March 22nd 2020, Hicks was presented with a surreal circumstance; a desolate city that was his oeuvre of paintings come to life. As New Yorkers were ordered to PAUSE, restaurants closed, bars shuttered, museums and retail shops ceased operation, we headed into our tiny apartments for what would be several months. In contrast, Hicks hit the streets, taking this once in a lifetime opportunity to capture the city that never sleeps in a forced slumber. Still New York is a collection of over 100 of Hicks’ photographs, taken at all hours of the night in the eerie quiet of New York at rest.
“Art Hiding in Paris”, “Art Hiding in New York” and “Still New York” will all be available for purchase during the book signing.
