Robert Hickman

Artist's Reception:
Saturday, January 18, 5-8pm
Exhibition Dates:
January 18 – March 2, 2014
“Drawn to the logic and universality of mathematics, I aim to engage viewers with a dangerous geometry.  With razor-sharp edges, roughly 7,200 individually cut three-dimensional triangles jut out from this 48' long mirror mosaic. Simultaneously chaotic and ordered, the dizzying kaleidoscopic system flashes and reverberates reflections as one walks along the jagged mosaic, provoking a visceral response.  Small glints of light also shimmer from unexpected areas in the gallery. 
Created with maximum efficiency out of recycled materials, 36 different sized triangles create 11 pyramid forms within the piece, all with corresponding master templates and jigs. Painstakingly cut by hand, the complex arrangement is both playful and dangerous. Although the work is fragile, it will cut you if you get too close--a cautionary tale of human interaction.”
Robert Hickman’s installations and sculptures were exhibited in solo and group shows at New York venues PS1, SculptureCenter, Exit Art, White Columns, Socrates Sculpture Park, and Saint Peters Church, among many others. His permanent public commissions are at 72nd Street and Broadway subway station in New York (Laced Canopy); Bryant Avenue pedestrian bridge, Hunts Point, Bronx (Silvered); Capital Community College, Hartford, CT; and Roosevelt Island Station, New York. Hickman has been reviewed in publications such as Art News, Sculpture Magazine, Time Out, New York Magazine, The New York Times, The New York Post, New York Daily News, and The Miami Herald. Hickman’s work was recognized by many national and international awards, among them two CEC Artslink Project Grants and a New York City MASterwork Award for Best New Public Art from The Municipal Society of New York. An Ohio native, Hickman currently is an Assistant Adjunct Professor at Hunter College, New York. He lives and works in Brooklyn.
