    Biography : Logan Hicks is a New York-based artist known for using multiple layers of stencils to achieve photorealistic imagery. Studying at the Maryland Institute of Contemporary Art in the early 1990s, Hicks cut his teeth as a successful screen printer, before being inspired to branch into stencils. During a party thrown at his 6,000 square foot warehouse he owned in Baltimore, Hicks befriended Shepard Fairey, who inspired him to move to Los Angeles to align with the Low Brow movement of the 90s, and concentrate on his fine art stencil work. Hicks relocated to Brooklyn in 2006 to focus on his fine art. Called a painter with a photographer’s eye, Hicks’ work has largely focused on the perception of the urban environment, at times humanizing its architectural angles and structures, and at others using its vastness to explore identity, awe, and loneliness. Through an almost old masters approach to lighting, Hicks has learned to manipulate ordinary architectural scenes into deeply metaphorical and contemplative imagery, compounded with his usage of color in the studio. In recent years, the artist has delved further into his own metaphorical language, bringing in themes like water to create dream-like imagery that explores his own meditative contemplation on life, death, struggle and submission. Tapping into his fascination with architecture, Hicks has also translated a history of decorative and cultural patterns into his stencil pieces, furthering the obscured reality created by patterns by incorporating them into photorealist stencil.

  • Gerard Rancinan  (+)

    Biography : Gérard Rancinan, who initially became widely known for his portrait photography, produces large-scale photographic tableaux commenting on social issues, politics, violence, and popular culture. Rancinan’s career a photojournalist in his teenage years, covering wars, riots, and natural disasters, directly shaped the critical tone of his later work. Rancinan’s works are often based on classical narratives and iconic artworks, but feature contemporary pop culture figures and objects in dramatic situations. Since 2005, Rancinan has worked on his epic series “Trilogy of the Moderns” with author Caroline Gaudriault, comprised of over 70 photographs. Subjects include remakes of Théodore Géricault’s Raft of the Medusa (1818-9) and Diego Velázquez’s Las Meninas (1665), as well as Mickey Mouse- and Batman-themed satires. French, b. 1953, Talence, France
