David Hicks states, regarding his work: “Agriculture speaks to me about my own human experience. In the agricultural world there are cycles that that feel like allegorical references to a human struggle, a struggle that starts with fertilization, moves through growth and finally ends in decay…This is the language I speak through and engage in my sculpture, a language of origin, form and beauty.”

Dominique Labauvie explains his focus on the line in his sculptures as having a double origin: classical work by Auguste Rodin—particularly the drawings of the Cathedrals of France, and the practice of steel and forge. In his own words, Labauvie describes his art: “A line of steel is for me a line that is built in segments. The segments interpret a handwriting, the movements of the arm and the hand. It is a line that is strengthened through its interruptions, with each interruption creating intervals and moments of silence.”

In her densely layered paintings, Sungyee Kim incorporates the principles of I Ching with the Taoistic pursuit of becoming one with material as in the Transformation of Things, the Buddhist concept of the whole universe within a single dust particle. The result of these repetitive yet unique gestures of layering and erasing reflects the inherent connectedness of microcosm and macrocosm.
