Denise Hickey Artist Bio:
Currently I am considering how we occupy space, how we create safe spaces in communal environments along with a bit of a look at aspirational living. Generally I have an unnecessary concern with the temporary. And a big attraction to objects. My work explores the ideas and ideologies that put forward the notion of home as a place of safety. It addresses a notion of feminine conflict through the materials and techniques I use. Working this way aims to suggest a sense security, nurturing and comfort on one level while simultaneously showing the tension and flaws. I embrace what are traditionally considered craft construction techniques. I create work using collage, knitting, and reclaimed domestic objects. By using these techniques and easily recognisable objects my work aims to offer a sense of accessibility as a way to give the viewer a "way in". I hope that by choosing to create work from everyday practices and objects increases the chance for discourse between the viewer and artwork.
