David Hicks & Chris Trueman: New Works
January 30 - March 5, 2016

"Chris Trueman and David Hicks, the two artists currently showcased in the “New Works” exhibition at Edward Cella Art and Architecture in Los Angeles, might seem to be an unlikely pair. They work in drastically different media: Trueman in paint, Hicks in sculpture. Both, however, are carefully attuned to the optical qualities of color, and one finds in both their practices a passion for rich hues and a search for the perfect palette."

David Hicks and Chris Trueman: New Works at Edward Cella Art & Architecture
January 30 - May 5, 2016

"The two-person show format is at its best when an inspiredpairing across time, genre, medium, or era illuminates its components through the alchemy of unlikely allegiance. Such is the curatorial directive behind the arrangement of painter Chris Trueman and sculptor David Hicks, whose juxtaposition highlights, as the press materials gamely assert, the degree to which 'Hicks sculpts with painterliness; and Trueman paints sculpturally.'"

"I tend to work in short encounters with my wall compositions. These encounters are broken up into multiple focuses. For example I initially begin by producing five or so objects that will set the tone for a piece. Once that has been established, I work to make pieces that relate to or respond to those initial model objects. This process is usually a fast-paced process that is heavy handed and quick so I can keep my direction.I have a tendency to drift with objects in an evolutionary way. Works keep evolving and changing, and I keep it quick so I don’t stray too far. Honestly, this pace also keeps my interest fresh and focused."
