Christopher Hickey Artist Bio:
Christopher Hickey is a professor of art at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, Georgia where he teaches studio art with a focus on printmaking and drawing. He earned the M.F.A. degree in printmaking from the University of Nebraska and the B.F.A. degree from Miami University of Ohio. His works have been exhibited in numerous national and regional juried exhibitions including, most recently, The 2014 Harnett Biennial of American Prints. Artist Statement I am interested in what the painter Jeffery Reed refers to as, the “quiet connection to the world around” us, the ability to be moved by fundamental things. The connections we experience, the palpable sense of one artist’s use of tactile and visual abilities to create something essential, is what interests me. That something so profound, so human, can be delivered in such a direct way drives my desire to communicate through fundamental realist subjects. I document objects, individuals, and places. These subjects (still life, figure and landscape) reflect the foundation of figurative art. I want the images to connect with the viewer through a shared understanding of tactile and perceptual sensibilities.
