IN THE MIND OF AN ARTIST “…I learned to go to the lonely places when I was young.”

Written By Kendra Hicks  Mine Muscle I create in a deep, deep mine. Terribly dark. Terribly lonely. My first couple of whacks ring through the halls and produce little, but when my pickax starts to fly, there is a steady stream of sparks that illuminate that dark place. Gems are uncovered, and there’s really nothing quite […]

Photo Curator | Your Second Pair Of Eyes

Although photography alone can tell a good part of the story, there are other factors that artists often overlook.

They are welcomed and frowned upon. […]

Art Subject | Public Human Expression

Behind their sunglasses, inside their winter coats, and in their pockets, people hurry concealing their anxiety, the expectations for where they are going, and the disappointment they just faced.  Scattered, catching a subway, crossing the street, walking a few city blocks or even a mile, all in public view without their daily mask. And like steam […]

Why I Still Photograph With Film

I love photographing with film.  In today’s high tech digital world I’m a dinosaur. When I place a roll of film in the camera it is as though I’m performing a ritualistic act. The process starts by taking the film out of the plastic canister and holding the roll in my hands. It’s a nice […]

Art Is My Mistress

  Art is my lover and my friend. My art and I have a relationship that can be best described as an emotional all-consuming, dominating, promiscuous rollercoaster.
