Artist David Hicks
Indianapolis, Indiana, USA
Self-Portrait as Superman
My current body of work explores the mental and emotional drama of my inner life, particularly through the use of the figure in costume and the self-portrait. I view the canvas or paper as a place where I can sort through deeper issues by playfully interweaving memories, dream imagery, myths, pop-culture icons, food, and other objects of personal significance.
I consider the symbolic potential of each image, slowly piecing them together over a period of months until an allegorical narrative is formed that embodies the complex, often contradictory, and intangible nature of my inner life: my thought patterns, attitudes, motives, worldviews, conflicting emotions, and fragmented belief systems.
