Steve Hicks’ Lines and Shapes

Steve Hicks is an artist who creates abstract oil paintings through the use of bold lines and shapes. I think the strong contrast between colors and line weights in his paintings help communicate a clear message of strength and confidence. I also really like how Hicks’ use of transparency and line direction creates a sense of depth in some areas of the painting, make the image seem more dynamic. This relates well to the projects we were working on in class as it shows how lines and shapes can be used differently to create a variety of engaging abstract images.
