Ron Hicks, the Faces of Eve

Interview with Ron Hicks

June 15, 2018

In his latest body of work, “Faces of Eve,” loosely inspired by the biblical story of Eve, Ron Hicks delves into ancient architypes, exploring the emotions of betrayal, strength, loss of one’s homeland, fear, and love in a contemporary setting. He blends abstraction with realism—an honest evolution that may seem, if you know his work from past years, as a departure. It is not. This work represents years of thinking through the process of painting, moving from craftsman rendering what was in front of him to the sublime artist open and secure in his ability to take all he’s learned and allow his emotions to guide the way.
