About this Art
The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 Inch Black Wood frame with UV-Glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.
"This painting was part of my recent exhibition "Love Never Saved" this past March of 2014 in New York. The whole show revolved around water as a theme, so it has nautical superstitions and sailor traditions in it. This piece in particular was about the sirens of the sea who would lure sailors to their death with their beautiful voices.
In many ways the piece is a collaborative piece. The dress worn was created by Julius LaCour, the model was provided by Trump Agency, the make up was done by my friend Keri Blair, and the male model is none other than Beau Stanton, who has done prints with 1xRUN before! All my work is created with stencils and aerosol. I took the photo and worked from that, but the final result was created with 12 layers of stencil and aerosol on canvas." - Logan Hicks
This RUN come signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Logan Hicks and 1xRUN.
Logan Hicks is a New York-based stencil artist whose work explores the dynamics of the urban environment. Originally a screenprinter, Logan’s work has gained notoriety due to his ability to capture the sometimes mundane cycle of city life in a haunting, yet refined way with his hand-sprayed stencils.
Stenciling started as a substitution for screenprinting, but quickly morphed into Logan’s medium of choice. A perfect union was formed through stencils: the dirty and gritty nature of the spraypaint showcasing the decay of the city while the muted shine of metallic paint mirrored the faint glimmer of hope and life within it. It is this symbiotic relationship with the city that fuels his work.
With his photorealistic style, Logan draws a parallel between the cold, harsh city and a warm, vibrant organism. It is alive; a breathing creature where the ebb and flow of people washing over its sidewalks act as cells circulating through its veins. Buildings block passageways, walls block views, doors hide openings. The outside world is effectively shut out while the city creates its own reality. Confined spaces on subways, honeycomb living structures; it is a labyrinth of working systems limited only by its border, its ‘skin’.
Logan uses his art to explore the microcosm in which he is a cell, just part of a whole. The nuances of city life that epitomize the urban existence are what he dwells upon.
