Sheila Hicks on view at Sikkema Jenkins Co. thru April 5, 2014
"Over the course of a career that spans five decades, Hicks has distinguished herself as one of the preeminent and most innovative artists working in the woven form. With textiles as her chosen medium, she has consistently sought to expand the boundaries of the art form to create distinctive work that belongs as much to art history as it does to modernist design and architecture. The gallery will exhibit both large-scale wall installations as well as a group of minims – framed miniature weavings made on a small portable loom that have been a part of Hicks’s practice for over 50 years." – Sikkema Jenkins Co.
Hicks’s work will also be included in this year’s Whitney Biennial on view from March 7 through May 25, 2014.
